It’s no secret butterfly can be a challenging stroke for any swimmer, regardless of the level. It’s imperative to break the butterfly stroke down piece by piece and simply think about one aspect of the stroke at a time.
Year-round swim lessons are very important for new swimmers. Many times, parents consider swim lessons as a “Summer Only” activity, keeping kids occupied during June, July, and August. This thought process should strongly be reconsidered by parents as the reality is that water emergencies can occur year-round. Here are 4 reasons why parents should strongly consider keeping their kids enrolled in year-round swim lessons.
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.
No other sport in the world opens doors to Life Experiences like swimming does. How many Life Experience would you have missed out on had you not known how to swim?
