The main four swimming strokes


What is on offer at SDSG?

The four basic strokes are outlined below, with videos and links to the Swim England website for more information.

Part of SDSG's Exercise and Swim Skills Re-engagement Project funded by North Yorkshire Country Council. 


Breaststroke is the most popular swimming stroke of all.

Front Crawl

The front crawl (also often called the freestyle stroke) is the fastest of the competitive swimming strokes.



The backstroke is the only one of the four competitive strokes that is swum on the back.


The butterfly stroke is the second-fastest swimming stroke and is quite exhausting.
