It's summertime – And for swim families, that means pool games! Here are 10 family-friendly pool games that are sure to please kids and parents alike. Best part about these games is that they are practically FREE! Grab those goggles, a pool float or two, towels, and sunscreen and head out to the neighborhood pool for some inexpensive fun and laughs with your family!
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.
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.
With the onset of summer, we head back to the pool, excited to get wet and cool off but struggling to remember what gear to bring and which skills to practice first. In this blog post, we’ll discuss necessary gear, practice tips, and exercises for beginning swimmers.
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.
