Important

Below is information about the two main strokes discussed and taught within lessons as we clarify our plans. Tredball is an interactive game unique to our company that is implemented within each class. You can read about this below.

Butterfly:
This stroke is generally seen as the most difficult to master. Therefore, it is not taught in schools or used for anything but racing. The “fly” for short is coach Mithun’s expertise as he competed at a provincial level and placed above the 20th ranking in his age group event. Having never been trained by a coach and being self-taught, he endured the process of finding hidden tricks to improve all by himself. Now in a great position, he can bestow these secret teachings to his disciples. With doing the fly, there is a constant movement of the body from the chest pushing forward, shoulders rolling back, arms bent, scooping around and to the sides, while the hips/torso is generating all the power for the hamstrings and calves to produce a downward kick which delivers just enough force for an up kick, flexing the ankles and giving the upper body enough strength to pull your head out above the water for a breath. The fly heavily incorporates the upper body yet embellishes the otherwise known as the “5th stroke,” Dolphin Kick.

Tredball:

An engaging sport innovated by cofounder Mithun Sudarshan, the head coach/administrator of the Young Canadian Swim Club. He has developed and nurtured it into a game that addresses one’s primary concern of breath holding and incorporates a little bit of soccer/volleyball. This game is played underwater with a 25-pound medicine ball passed around using any part of the body while treading. When needing air, one player passes the ball to the other and swims to the surface before bobbing back to resume with others. Ensuring safety, students are not pressured to play intensely but rather understand the game’s dynamics and pick it up at their own pace.

 

Freestyle:

Acknowledging that this sport is the most basic stroke in swimming is essential. However, it is fair to assume it can also be tricky as it requires tremendous patience and an understanding of bodily movement. The procedure in which this must be carried out is as follows:
1. Initial dive or push off the wall.
2. Dolphin Kick, then break into strokes on the water’s surface.
3. Keep streamlined, kicking with hips and torso.
4. Arms stay bent 90 degrees when reaching out of the water, then extend forward.
5. Scooping the water and practicing balanced breathing.

6. Understanding the momentum and physics of a flip turn.

 

What our program consists of:

- Experienced staff in competitive, specialized swimming.
- Step-by-step stroke technique improvement via quality equipment.
- Working with instructors who care about your progressive development, instilling a natural passion for swimming within the confines of each lesson.
- Can access Ontario’s finest facility pool, the Toronto Pan-Am Centre.
- Flexible training schedules for optimal client support.
- Guaranteed to learn to swim the basic three strokes: freestyle, back crawl, and breaststroke.
- Competitive Advantage: Tips for learning Butterfly, good dolphin kick, momentum-driven flipturns.
- Choice of learning curriculum by the client, as this privilege is not common amongst other organizations.
- Final 10 minutes of the hour are spent learning breath-holding skills while engaging in an interactive and intense game called “Tredball.”
- We make sure you are satisfied and walk away with confidence in your newly found swimming capabilities.
- 1/3 people worldwide only know how to swim, and approximately 236,000 lives are claimed annually due to drowning-related incidents globally, which we are on a mission to curb.
- We've covered you from diving to endurance to breath holding, strength training, technique definition, competitive tips, and tricks, dealing with pressurized depths, general fitness, and lifestyle benefits!
- Our regiment considers various approaches to teaching in the water and out of it based on the client’s comfort.
- We train using third-party observation, i.e., Cameras to monitor techniques below water for clients’ analysis.

- Unlike every other course/program-related lesson company, we do not offer report cards as we deem them demoralizing for students to succeed if they encounter challenges.
