Please note that this website is Gay’s at Swim With Us. Irene and Steve each have their own websites and we work as individuals. I will be quite happy to help you find the right place for your lessons. Irene has a lovely private pool for your individual use. Steve teaches in public pools and can also offer private swimming lessons. He was also trained as a Total Immersion Coach. Whoever you choose for your residential swimming lessons you can be assured of a first class service for your one-to-one lessons with your instructor in the water with you.
Prior to teaching a jumping entry it is important to give consideration to the depth of water in relation to size of the pupil (hard impact with the pool floor can result in injury). It is important to teach the pupil how to land safely i.e. bending the knees to absorb the force.
WITH HELPER ON THE SIDE
helper secured and holding pupil’s hand
toes over the edge
bend knees on landing
suitable for those with confidence
pupils must normally be able to stand in the water
not suitable in very shallow water
WITH HELPER IN THE WATER
helper reaches towards the child
helper must be confident in the water
helper should be an adult
Once the pupil can jump confidently to a helper in the water the next step is to jump unaided. At this point it is vital to stress:
stress feet first entry
Benefits of an unaided jumping entry
al lows the whole group to enter at the same time
is good fun
