FunSwim begin on July 2008 at Puchong, Bandar Puchong Jaya, Malaysia. With the objective of giving a private, clean and effective swimming lesson to children.
Our effective teaching method is useful to build young children with confident toward water. We believe swimming is more than knowledge, it is a BEHAVIOR. In a fun and relaxing way, we build the children's interest on water. Once the children picks up the "BEHAVIOR", they will not forget thought his/her lifetime. For more detail on how we teach, please refer to Our Syllabus.
On Jan 2014, we have relocated to 54, Jalan BK4/3, Bandar Kinrara 4, 40150 Puchong and continue to serving you our best.
Confident and interest
Confident and interest is the most important areas area children need to pick up. Without this two area, children will not be able to continue and enjoy the journey of learning.
On the first few classes, we will observe the confident level of the kid toward water, if they do not feel secure in water, we will build their confident with game and relationship with the instructor. By doing this, the children will enroll into the instructor's instruction by doing more "challenging" activity.
Breathing and kicking
When we swim, we do not breathe as per normal activities. The sequence of breathing is very important. So we proceed to teach them correct breathing method. This step is helpful for the children to swim and also a good training to the children's lung and stamina. Children will soon pick up this skill because it is what they do when they are in mother's womb.
Kicking is the next step we teach to the children. This requires good balancing skill when using the swimming board.
Freestyle is the first stroke the children will learn, with the correct breathing and kicking, children can procede with their front crawl. As such, the term freestyle is often used as a synonym for the front crawl, and this style is generally the fastest. Up to this stage, kids can pick up this stroke in 3 months or less.
Breastroke is the most popular recreational style due to its stability and ability to keep the head out of water a large portion of time. But breastroke require different kicking and crawling method, so it is a new challenge to the children again.
But we will start teaching the correct kicking method and until they master it, then only we will proceed to correct crawling method. Normally kids who is able to pick up Freestyle, Breastroke is not a big problem.
Backstoke, also called the back crawl, is the only regulated style swum on the back. The advantage of it is easy breathing, but the disadvantage of swimmers not being to see where they are going.
The challenge for children is to overcome fear in doing back kicking. This requires high balancing skill and stable movement. After they have done it correctly, we will teach them correct back crawl which is according to International standard.
Butterfly Stroke is the advance level in Our Syllabus, it require very good technique to be feasible. Many children consider it the most difficult style of swimming.
Feasible movement of the body and leg is important. We will provide proper guidance to children and ensure they are able to make it. Then we will follow by the Butterfly front crawl which needs strong muscles.
