A perfect tool for any swimming lesson, SwimPix were developed with additional needs in mind.
SwimPix are designed to give a clear picture of a swimming skill or stroke being demonstrated by the teacher. The clarity of the cards make them accessible for non-English speakers and those with hearing difficulties, dyslexia, visual and kinaesthetic swimmers. They provide a versatile, visual aid for storyboarding your training sessions.
