A recent Saturday morning swimming lesson was just wrapping up, and I was giving “high fives” to my four Beginner 1 students. Three of the kids quickly exited the dock but 10-year-old Allison peeled back her steamed goggles to reveal her misty, brown doe eyes.
Streamline Brands is excited to announce the rollout of our enhanced learn to swim curriculum across our family of swim schools: Swimtastic, SafeSplash, and SwimLabs. With a refined emphasis on safety, stroke technique and making swim lessons fun, our enhanced curriculum and true skill progression deliver clear value to students and parents. These attributes, along with our revamped instructor training, teaching aids and technologies, differentiate our swim schools from the rest of the learn to swim market.
In this blog post, we’ll discuss necessary gear, practice tips, and exercises for intermediate swimmers.
Swim gear can be simple: a suit, towel, sunscreen, goggles (refer to blog “Tips for Beginners” for more information on goggles) and a swim cap for those with long hair. Remember, it’s still important to swim where a lifeguard is present or to always have another person in the water or close by.
Growing up I was always the shy child. I was the one who clung to my mother’s leg when it was time to go to school, or who hid in the back when it was time to choose teams in gym class. I never had a sport or a passion that brought out the extrovert in me until I started swimming lessons.
Do you remember when you took swimming lessons?
Most of us do.
Learning to swim is a defining experience in a child's life, an experience that creates lasting memories similar to learning to ride a bike.
