Beginning swimming lessons for kids should be all about fun not form.
Most important, if your kids are going to be around swimming pools, rivers, creeks or the ocean, you absolutely must get them to feel comfortable in the water. And that means having fun at it!
Remember the lessons they tried to give kids and it was all about FORM? No, no, make it all about fun and the rest will come.
I was lucky enough to watch these kids being tossed into the air - "cannonballing", they called it - and jumping off the side of the pool, all with the instructors encouragement. The kids loved it!!
They were also in the water, mostly their heads under water, diving for stuff. It was all a big game and it was FUN. The result? After only a few short lessons, these little kids were all over the pool, and mostly under water.
From there? Who knows, maybe the Olympics someday?
