    Cue Complexity

    Rather than reach a certain level of skill and then turn off the brain to swim, in our method of learning we increase the challenge on the brain to increase the resilience of our skills.

    The brain has only so much capacity to concentrate on new skills. It takes time to imprint a skill so that it becomes automatic (controlled smoothly by a subconscious part of the brain). Once we feel a certain skill becoming easier, almost automatic, we can increase the challenge gradually to strengthen that skill further.

    In the first stage of our training we use just cues extensively – starting with just one cue at a time, and then holding two at a time and then three or more (refer to Cue Blending).

    In the next stage, we add Stroke Counting with Cues. This activates and integrates both sides of the brain in more powerful ways.

    In the next stage, we add Tempo with Cues.

    And, in the ultimate stage, we practice holding all three at the same time.
