- 9:25am- Gather near the medium pool (0.9m) or call it training pool to settle all the logistic such as marking attendance, issue out of tee-shirt , goggle and swim cap. + Group photo taking
- 9:35am-break the ice, get to know each other and pool water safety rule and regulation.
- 9:40am~ 11am- Introduction to breathing technique, pool entry and exit, water confident games, how to wear life jacket properly, backfloat introduction,etc.
Pool closed due to bad weather. The group did land drills, core exercises and flexibility exercise. The bad weather did not stop these kids from going for swimming lessons. The core exercise is need to build strength to support their structure such as the body, the leg and the arm power essential in swimming. The flexibility exercise is also another important element in promoting good swimming techniques. Such technique are applied on the ankle, the shoulder, leg and hips which will result in good propulsion in swimming.
Check our swim camp here for daily update. The students arrived as early as 9:15am and eagerly waiting for their lessons to start. Every students were given free caps, goggles and t shirts for the sign up package. They were posing for the camera before lesson start. We have 3 coaches to take care of the children as water safety was our first priority. We also want the kids to learn well and have fun.
Here’s the group of students wearing the Aqzog Swim School T shirt bearing our cute little logo. Behind the t shirt written “Nurturing Tomorrow’s Champion”. These kids really had big dreams. That was why they were here…training hard and following the likes of Phelp and Schooling……well… work hard enough and you will get there. 🙂
Students were practising their survival back stroke. Coach helping the kids to overcome their fear in water on their back. Remembering the 3 “R”= Relax, Rotation, Rhythm… I could not empathize enough that they need to be relax while on their back. Some could relax and some couldnt…..maybe they have not gotten use to it. Some kids were saying “water get into my ear”… I assured them is normal …. just get use to it. You will be alright. Awesome kid.
Students engaging attentively with the coach’s demonstration and explanation. Awesome.
Probably the sun was too bright…. we see all kind of funny expression on their faces…..A group photo taken before class dismissed.
