KAL Swim Training Academy is for swimmers aged 6-12 years old who are in Stage 6 or above on the Swim England Learn to Swim Framework.
KAL Training Academy is part of the KAL Aquatics Pathway, allowing swimmers to progress from the Swim England Learn to Swim Framework to Aquatic Skills Framework to potentially join the KAL Swim Performance programme for Elite Level Competition. KAL Swim Training Academy is a coach led swimming session, developing a range of aquatic skills relevant to competitive swimming. Sessions include skills such as start & turns, as well as stroke development, while working towards Stage 8 of the Swim England Learn to Swim Framework. Sessions are held at various pools and times throughout KAL.
A KAL Swim Training Academy Gala is held twice per year (once COVID-19 restrictions allow), allowing swimmers to put into practice the skills they have learnt in a fun competition. Swimmers demonstrating quality skills and attendance are invited to join KAL Training Academy+ (currently suspended due to COVID-19 restrictions) and continue their development to potentially be invited to join the performance pathway with KAL Swim Performance.
