3 Reasons To Book A SwimWay Half Term Holiday Course

Half way through every term SwimWay stops it’s regular weekly term-time swimming lessons for one week. This week falls over the half term period for most schools (always check our calendar against your own school calendar as term dates may vary). Over the course of this week, SwimWay runs it’s ever-popular Half Term Holiday Crash Courses at selected venues.

These courses are extremely popular as the children improve rapidly due to the intense attention and focus on their needs throughout the week. Combining fun with the obvious health benefits, our half term crash courses are an excellent boost to the children’s development! Here are 3 reasons to sign up!

1. Lesson Continuity

Continuity is key to progression. Sometimes, even a short break can make an impact. Our students thrive in their lessons when they attend on a regular basis.  When a child attends lessons irregularly during a term, you will find that their progression can suffer as a result. A break can very often be a well-deserved rest and have a positive effect on many children. Whereas, some children find that supplementing their weekly lessons with an intensive course gives a tremendous boost to their development. That leads us to…

2. Rebalancing Abilities in a Shared Class

For a multitude of reasons, sometimes a student may struggle with particular exercises/skills.  This can cause some of our 1:2 or small group lessons to gradually become a bit of a mismatch over time as one child continues to progress, while the other struggles to attain some of the necessary pass criteria in the SwimWay Stages.

We find that signing up for a week’s crash course can really help master some of the skills a student may have been struggling with.  It does wonders for their confidence and health, and of course is a whole lot of fun!  We sometimes suggest a child signs up for a 1:1 holiday course if they are starting to mismatch with their term-time buddy. However, pairing them with a different partner over the holidays can help too!

3. A Fun Holiday Activity

Never underestimate the fact that one of the main things we focus on in our lessons is for the children to ENJOY THEMSELVES!  This creates a fun and encouraging atmosphere, and helps push them to become better.  If you’re not going away for your holidays, what better way to give the kids a fun and exciting activity than signing them up for a SwimWay Holiday Swimming Crash Course?
