The proposed program

1. Swimmers would undergo an initial verbal assessment to gauge their current skill level, strengths, and areas for improvement. This may involve a trial session to confirm suitability.

2. Coaches would work with participants to fine-tune their stroke technique in all four main strokes: freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly. This might involve drills focused on body position, arm, and leg movement, breathing mechanics, and timing.

3. The program would also incorporate structured workouts to build endurance and stamina for longer distances. This might include interval training, distance swims.

4. Coaches would provide personalised feedback to each swimmer based on their specific needs and goals.

5. With the support of the coach, participants would track their progress over time, setting specific goals for improvement in areas such as stroke efficiency, lap times, and overall endurance.
