Promotions Best Practice in Teaching Grades (Part One)

As a club we should follow advice on best practice from the ASA as it changes. Over two months the IoS and ASA gave advice on best practice regarding Teaching Groups. One of the key best pratices to take from this is the need to promote children even if they get stuck with some part of their stroke or skill. i.e. we don’t leave a child languishing in the lower grades if they can never manage a correct breaststroke kick of proper dive. These swimmers are not going to make it to squads if they don’t fix these problems, nor are they going to diminish the teaching in other grades if they are promoted.
