Bolton School welcomed Swim England to the School pool to help film a new set of instructional videos. The School’s water polo players were filmed performing a series of moves and skills in the water which will support teachers who want to learn to teach water polo.
Levels 8 to 10 of the Learn to Swim Pathway has modules for water polo, but Swim England has overhauled the curriculum with assistance from Bolton School’s water polo Coach Mr McGinty, who also coaches for the Manchester City team and has recently been appointed the Head Water Polo Coach for ESSA (English Schools’ Swimming Association). It is hoped that the new curriculum, with the help of the instructional videos, will increase interest in water polo nationally.
Boys’ Division pupils were chosen to star in the instructional videos as they were the right age group and skill level to show the requirements.
The boys spent a whole day in the pool, working hard with Mr McGinty to demonstrate all the skills Swim England needed to capture on film.
