ASA Foundation Framework

The British Gas Learn to Swim Programme takes the non-swimmer on a journey from the first splash to developing confidence and competence in the water.

There is a definite pathway to the British Gas Learn to Swim Programme, starting with the Foundation level, moving through the movement skill Stages 1-7 and culminating in the sport skill Stage 8-10.

Foundations

The swimmer’s ‘journey through aquatics’ starts with Foundation, a programme for developing early-years water confidence, encouraged through sessions such as ‘adult and child’ and pre-school sessions.

Emphasis is on the development of very basic motor skills and an introduction to water and the swimming environment through fun and games. The ASA Duckling Awards, Swim- A Song awards and Alpha Step Awards provide the appropriate rewards for this section.

The next stage of the journey takes a swimmer through FUNdamental Movement. This makes up Stages 1-7 of the British Gas ASA Learn to Swim Programme.
