When to start Swim Lessons?
Swim lessons start at conception. Hear me out….. Dad starts with a long swim to Mom. Then Mom builds an indoor pool for love child offering 9 months of non-stop swimming. It’s at birth that we have to change our breathing to meet the world. With all due respect…. Swim Lessons have already started. Parents are the first swim teachers. The big bad world introduces fear overriding all that natural talent.
When the umbilical cord heals, baby is ready to get back in water. Dunk them before 9-months old returning to that instinctive natural talent. Practice before they can think about it. Don’t let them forget. We’re happy to help you dunk your baby. Not kidding.
Water skills are natural before a two-year-old has any chance to protest. If they’re comfortable in water, start Kids Swim Lessons. Swimming is kicking legs, moving arms, and Breathing in water. All three things have a different rhythm. Developmentally they won’t be ready to syncronize for a couple more years. Mostly we have FUN! If your 2-year old isn’t ready for Ocean Swim Lessons, we have an awesome Mommy and Me recommendation for Kona Swim Lessons.
Three-year-olds can do all things. They can kick all day. Big arms moving making waves. Breath in water with happy bubbles. At this age we play swim skills and Practice. This age is learning how to learn, making their own decision, and mastering language for all the big feelings.
5-year-old is ready to learn how to swim with instruction and efficiency. It’s our greatest joy offering Kids Swim Lessons in the OCEAN right here in Kona. At this age, they pick it up quickly. Make sure they have their own great pair of goggles. Let’s get um’ Salty!
