Summer Swimming Lesson Tips for Parents
This article offers tips for summer swimming lessons, choosing a swimming program, swim instructor certification, and swim gear.
When choosing a summer swimming lesson program, there are several things to consider. First, try to find a program with age-appropriate levels of instruction. Some programs begin with infants and children advance according to skill level and age. Make sure that the instructors have current certifications in all of these: CPR (adult, child, and infant), First Aid, Lifeguard Certification Course, and the Water Safety Instructor Course. CPR and First Aid require annual re-certification, while Lifeguard Certification is good for three years.
Once you find a summer swimming program that offers an age and skill-level course appropriate for your child, commit to taking them to all of the lessons. Course session schedules vary from place to place, but pick a session that easily fits into your schedule. Each lesson is foundational, meaning that if you miss one class, your child will miss out on important skills critical to learning the next skill. Don't put them at a disadvantage. Building their confidence is an extremely important aspect of swimming lessons.
You will want to purchase a comfortable swimsuit that fits your child well. Children don't want to fuss with bottoms that bunch up, tops that fall down, or styles that will restrict their movement. Minimize these distractions so that your child will be able to focus on what they are learning. Purchase sunscreen that absorbs immediately and is water resistant. Although my children are older now, we continue to use Water Babies by Coppertone and never have to worry about sunburns. I recommend covering their exposed skin before leaving home for the lesson. Don't forget their ears, especially if your child wears a short haircut. They may not want to go back, or may not be able to return, to their next lesson if they have suffered a sunburn. Don't forget to make it fun with brightly colored beach towels, eye goggles, and flip flops. Your child may also require ear plugs, particularly if they have had problems with ear infections. If your child has had ear surgery, check with your doctor about ear protection.
Never forget that a child can drown in only inches of water and should not be left unsupervised around water, even if they have had swimming lessons. Check out the Red Cross website and the YMCA for more information about swimming lessons.
