What are the best practices for teaching the Dolphin Kick and Butterfly Stroke?


With the new Swimsafer requirement to teach the Butterfly Swim Stroke at Stage 5 (10m Dolphin Kick) and Stage 6 (15m Butterfly Stroke), this peer learning session offers swimming coaches the opportunity to learn from, and share with each other how best to teach these techniques!


The objectives of this workshop are:

b. To share and learn from fellow NROC Swimming Coaches on the Butterfly Swim strokes drills

c. To share with NROC Swimming Coaches on ‘Strokes Correction Techniques’ to help swim students swim with ease and progress well in their Butterfly Swim Stroke

This is a practical session and participating coaches should:

  • Be dressed in swimming attire; and
  • Bring along their own goggles, towel and suntan lotion
