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:
- Seeing a student’s smile and sense of accomplishment as they master a swim skill that they have been working hard at.
- 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.
