Here are 5 Tips to Help Your Child Learn to Swim Faster!

June 30, 2018

Summer is officially here and that means public and neighborhood pools are now open across the country. As a swim school owner tasked with teaching the Life Skill of swimming to our students there are two things that make us feel good about the job we are doing:

  1. Seeing a student’s smile and sense of accomplishment as they master a swim skill that they have been working hard at.
  2. Cheers from parents when they see their kiddo completing a skill or earning a ribbon.

These 2 things only happen when lessons are taught the right way, when a child gets positive support from their families and when a child gets water time outside of the swim lesson. Because swimming is a skill sport, we encourage practice, positive reinforcement, and lots of support from families.

Learning to swim is a Life Skill and should be a non-negotiable in every household. Learning to swim will give your child the ability to expose themselves to many life experiences…ocean swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, canoeing, fishing, boating, swim team, healthy exercise, etc. More importantly, it arms them with the ability to keep themselves water safe and to enable them to potentially save a life.
