We started with some stretching and warm up exercise before we began our swim lessons. The kids were taught breathing in swimming and recap on their prone gliding drills, kicking drills and arm action for freestyle. In a single line, the kids were tasked to do a 2X 50M flutter kicking getting their feel for water on their feet and making splashes. The coaches were around to guide and making sure they were kicking properly.

8th June ’16 Swim camp Day 2

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.

Kids were taught about water safety and how to wear and use the life jacket probably. Seen here is katlin Anup doning her life jacket.

Kids learning how to perform a throw rescue.

Core exercise training is essential in Swimming. It helps built the posture and muscle development for your child.

Student Lucian performing a good streamline posture. Indeed awesome!!!! This is a very good steamline position (base position) for all strokes. Noticed how he locked his elbow and knee?

Basic jumping using leg power need to be realized in swimming especially breast stroke leg kicking action and jump start. This exercise is also a useful drills for leg flexibility.

Body rotation exercise. This is the repetitive exercise for front crawl. Similar land drills workout that is applicable to swimming. Again it is a technique based work out.

7th June ’16 Swim camp Day 1

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.

Backfloat in progress. One of the essential skill in supine position in case of emergency.

Children were tasked to swim over the hoop as part of the water confident games. This created awareness of streamline body in swimming and is part of the games too.

One kid managed to jump into the hoops… The rest follows….


Students engaging attentively with the coach’s demonstration and explanation. Awesome.
