With only 4 children per class, you can be assured that your child will be getting the attention they deserve
Our teachers instruct from in the water and will often lead by example: demonstrating the technique accurately so that children can copy. You wouldn’t try to teach someone to drive from the pavement, so why would you try to teach someone to swim from the pool-side?!
We’re hands-on with our teaching: we ensure your child’s safety by giving them the physical safety net of our hands in the water and we physically help them with their technique in order to get it right as quickly as possible. We believe in giving each child elite-level swimming technique, we don’t expect them to compete, but the idea is that each child will leave Typhoon with the strongest technical stroke, which will serve them well for the rest of their lives
Typhoon provides you with weekly updates on your child’s progress and what the next steps are in their pathway. Swimming is an odd sport, water is about fifty times more viscous (thicker) than air and any minor imperfection in technique is therefore 50x more slowing than it would be on dry land. In swimming, the aim is to fix your hand in the water and pull your body past your hand – not just simply ‘windmill’ your arms in a cause-and-effect style approach. Because of these nuances, intricacies and technicalities we like to ensure you understand why we’re doing what we’re doing, so that you’re fully onboard with the logic and can sit back whilst we do what we do best
