How can you help as a parent?

You play an essential role in your child’s aquatic experience. Your enthusiasm and guidance can make your child’s swim lessons fun and rewarding.

  • Support your child by praising his or her effort in the pool. 
  • Bring a healthy snack and drink for your child after the lesson to replace fluids and energy. 
  • Understand that children develop swimming skills at different rates. Remember, many children need to repeat a level multiple times to complete all of the skills. 
  • Ask the instructor which skills your child should review, and then make practicing at home or the pool fun!
