What is the Stroke Transition Programme?

On this programme you will learn the most effective way to transition your swimmers from the rollback-and-float technique (learnt in the Water Safety Programme) to traditional strokes. You will learn to teach the correct streamlined body position in preparation for teaching strokes. This teaching programme is important to effectively and smoothly progress your students from basic water safety skills to advanced traditional stroke techniques.

What everyone says...

“This course has been a major live-changing experience. Not just with the technical knowledge but my own personal growth as well.

The content was so much more than I thought before. I knew I would learn the technical of teaching children how to float, but all the other skills that I learn, how to tap into the child’s emotional development were amazing”.

“If you really want to stand out on your career as a swimming instructor, you really need to be part of this programme.

This is something fresh and new, and you will feel like when you apply this technique, it is when you are really helping children to be safer in the water.”





Xavi Saporta

"This course is life-changing course.

If you want to go to next level, if you want to get extra knowledge about swimming, or if you want to teach kids to really be safer in the water, you have to do this course. It is so different for any other course that I've done and I have done so many of them. If you are looking for people who can teach you to become a more experienced teacher with different approaches and quicker achieving results you have to go to ISA".



Diana Daly

“I love to teach with ISA as their method is innovative and it works brilliantly. They really care about the wellbeing of their swimmers, giving them the tools to be safer in the water.

I also like the way they adapt to all kinds of children or adults, always trying to teach in a way that makes learning more interesting.”





Julio Gallego

London, UK

“After 9  years teaching conventional swimming lessons in Barcelona Spain, I couldn’t believe there was a different method where young children could learn to be self-reliant in the water.

When Miguel proposed that I move out to London and I looked into the swimming school that he was developing there, I was extremely impressed. I didn’t think twice, I packed all my things and I came to London where here, away from home, I am learning so much! My favourite thing about teaching is that you get to see the children learn to swim and have fun and you learn about the children at the same time.”
