In Stage 5 of the ASA Learn to Swim Framework, your swimmers will focus on swimming all four strokes to the ASA expected standards. Swimmers will also develop skills in sculling, treading water and complete rotation.


Looking for a fun way to teach sculling... then let's "Follow the Leader".
Players take turns to be the leader. The leader of each pair or group begins by standing still and moves off on a signal to travel in different directions; head first, feet first and in different ways e.g. moving, tucked, prone (face down) or supine (face up).

Change the leader to make sure everyone gets a turn.
