“i have benefited a lot from the competitive swimming program, i used to detest swimming due to the lack of motivation from the burnout i always faced after every competitive swim training or meets. The physical and emotional anxiety i faced used to be very tremendous.
The instructors in this competitive program are ex competitive swimmer and industry expert. They were able to teach and converse with their students professionally. Beside training you to swim faster, they taught me mental resilience and gave me motivation at the same time to strive for higher goals. Now i feel fun and i am able to enjoy the swim 100% without focusing all my effort now on just winning. USPRT have helped me a lot to achieve the potential i am at right now. Strongly recommend to learn competitive swimming with friendly dolphin swim school!

There is no time frame but usually it takes at least 3 years of stroke correction and muscle memory building to swim faster
However, the recommended time frame depends on individual. Start working hard and do not skip training session to speed up the process. Hard work pays off!
It is better to train with a professional swimming competitive instructor, he/she will be able to see your stroke from the side and correct positioning better. It is extremely difficult to judge where you go wrong for competitive swim training.
