Child Swim

What will my child learn during lessons?


My instruction focuses on water safety and accident prevention with parents and children.  Children have an amazing capacity for learning.  The earlier they are introduced to the aquatic environment the more likely they are to thrive there.  Through a series of games and routine we create muscle memory, streamline the swimmer in the water, maximize ease of movement, and help many overcome their fear of water. 


With all of my students I assess their skills and I ask three questions: 1) What are their strengths? 2) How can I help make them safer in the water? 3) How can I help them be more efficient?  All my instruction is tailored to the student’s unique abilities and challenges, and I work to build confidence with positive reinforcement.  If something is especially difficult for the student, instead of saying “no, that is wrong”, I explain how they can move their body differently and why.


While instructing I work to create a fully sensory experience.  No matter what a swimmer’s learning style, their body will retain information about the necessary skills for the foundation of swimming.
