More than 80 young swimmers turned out for the second Learn To Swim (LTS) Swim League of the year, held on Saturday 23 March at the 25-meter pool at British International School, Phuket (BISP).

The Swim League is a fun event designed to showcase what the primary swimmers have been learning in their weekly Flying Fish swim lessons. Swimmers do not receive formal placings. Instead, the emphasis is on enjoyment, skill and stroke acquisition, and encouraging the children to demonstrate the respect and kindness values they learn at school.

Swimmers in five different levels from the LTS programme took part in a variety of races, from freestyle kick to butterfly. After the racing was complete, participants stayed for a pool party, where they had the opportunity to relax and play with their friends.

Head of the Learn To Swim programme, Luke Curtis, says: “Once again, the whole coaching team was impressed with the positive attitude of our swimmers and it was great to see so many happy faces.

“It’s a well known fact that when children are happy they perform better, and this event was no exception. Thanks to all the parents for their continued support of our swim events.”

More than 250 swimmers are currently involved in the LTS programme. It is the first of two swim programmes within Flying Fish, which all swimmers must complete before graduating to the Squad programme.
