National Plan for Teaching Swimming, powered by British Gas
Cornish Swim Academy forward movements
The National Plan for Teaching Swimming (NPTS - Powered by British Gas) 2007 is the national syllabus produced by the ASA to assist and support the delivery of swimming lessons we run in Cornwall
It is the most successful sporting programme of its kind and the syllabus is currently being implemented in over 1.000 swimming programmes nationwide as well as being adopted overseas as a model of good practice.
The NPTS has been developed to use fun and games to take children from their first splash to full competence in the water via 10 Stages but is underpinned throughout by Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) principles, with clear progression between each stage. The programme fully encompasses all aquatic disciplines, and incorporates Rookie Lifesaving in conjunction with the Royal Life-Saving Society.
The 'swimmer pathway' resulting from the revised syllabus provides more opportunity and variety for swimmers, as well as providing a smooth, progressive structure to take them through the stages. The ASA hopes this will improve the number of swimmers who continue to learn to swim in the later stages and provide a clear link into clubs for those who have completed or progressed well through the stages of the NPTS
The National Plan for Teaching Swimming (NPTS) is an all-inclusive programme which takes the non-swimmer from his or her first splash to developing confidence and competence in the water. The National Governing Body for Swimming, the ASA, has produced a national syllabus for aquatics, in order to equip learn to swim providers with the training and tools to deliver a multi-aquatic, multi-skill programme.
The swimmer's journey through aquatics following the National Plan for Teaching Swimming will result in the development of a wide range of skills. These skills, are a jigsaw of pieces and when put together result in a competent, confident and safe swimmer who has the skill base for developing technique in a wide range of water based sports.
