Competitive Swimming Focused Programs

Unless you were born with gills, swimming fast is a difficult skill to develop. When you are trying to improve your performance in the water, coaches agree that you need to focus on technique first and then strength. Practice only makes permanent, to approach perfection the goal is to do it right and then do it powerfully.

Aqua Culture instructors and coaches use stroke drill progressions as part of a total teaching and swimming curriculum which starts with an effective and technically superior learn-to-swim program and progresses to the efficient, powerful execution of strokes in competition.

Assessment required prior to placement in all classes.

Read below of check out Aqua Culture's Stroke Development brochure for more information!
