Stroke Development
The Stroke Development course provides swimmers with the opportunity to develop all four swimming strokes from a basic technique through to being effective and efficient in the water.  At Swim am byth, we feel, having the flexibility to be able to swim a number of strokes prior to further refining your skills and entering 'squad' prepares the swimmer to be able to train at a greater level and quality.
