Embracing Swimming in an Indoor Pool!

Posted on Mar 5, 2019 6:37:35 PM by Lindsay Krol Pursglove, PhD, MBA in Swimming tips from an instructor, in swimming health tips, in staying healthy in the winter, in facts

At Swimtastic, our goal is to teach swimming through a positive, safe and loving environment. We recognize that each swimmer has different emotional and developmental abilities and we cater lessons to each individual's needs.

Parents and first time learners often have questions about lessons and swimming in an indoor pool versus an outdoor pool. We're therefore addressing the differences and adding in some tips to help along the way. If you have questions on making your lesson more comfortable, water temperature or what a 'rash guard' is, then read on!

Swim Lessons are a Sport Workout

Posted on Feb 21, 2019 6:00:53 PM by Lindsay Krol Pursglove, PhD, MBA in Lifetime exercise, in Swimming tips from an instructor, in Healthy benefits

When most of our new families think swim lessons, they first associate water safety and drowning prevention tactics. Then as their swimmers get older and gain more swim skills, they contemplate swim outlets for sport and exercise. Remember, Swimtastic Swim schools provide this as well through our program Waves. When working out at the gym, in an exercise class, or outside, we prepare our bodies to work muscles and burn calories. The same goes for swim lessons. And what we would like our swim families to know is that no matter your level of swim skill, your body is going through a workout in the water.

The Power of Positivity

Posted on Feb 16, 2018 2:34:46 PM by Lindsay Krol Pursglove, PhD, MBA in Swimming tips from an instructor, in Positive Impact, in Missy Franklin, in swimming goals

At Swimtastic (and our sister schools SafeSplash & SwimLabs) we believe in the power of positivity. Positive reinforcement doesn’t just focus on a swimmer mastering a skill set. Our instructors are specifically trained to identify any element of the swim lesson that has elevated and impacted that kiddo in or out of the water. It’s not uncommon at Swimtastic to see lots of smiles, hugs, high-fives, and thumbs up...but wait there’s more!

Swim Instructor Substitutes; Not Ideal, But It Happens!

Posted on Feb 7, 2018 7:00:00 AM by Lindsay Krol Pursglove, PhD, MBA in Parenting Tips, in Parenting Experiences, in Swimming tips from an instructor, in Swimming instructors

Our swim families are stellar, and we love seeing our swimmers every day at the pool! Each swim instructor looks forward to lessons and seeing their swimmers weekly. The relationship between swimmer and instructor becomes stronger and stronger over time, which is why we always strive to provide consistency each week.

Imagine getting ready for lessons, driving to the pool, arriving on deck to be told: “sorry, your instructor is absent.” Bummer, and double bummer for the parent, swimmer, and staff. We totally understand the strain it puts on our swimmers when an instructor is out. Trust us, as a team, we feel the strain trying to cover the shift, learn about the kiddos, review class notes, and all while trying to provide a quality lesson. But have no fear! There are ways to handle the substitute situation and rest assured that your swimmer is still in good hands with a substitute teacher.

Avoid the Fall Season Fall Off

Posted on Aug 11, 2017 10:34:58 AM by Lindsay Krol Pursglove, PhD, MBA in Pool Safety Tips, in Swim Lessons, in Fall Swimming, in water safety tips, in Fall Swim Lessons, in Children swim lessons, in Swimming instruction, in Swim Tips, in fall workout routine

This summer has been great at Swimtastic Swim Schools for our swimmers and families. Summer, as the warmest season of the year, allows swimmers to practice water skills outside of our lessons. Outdoor pools, water parks, and natural bodies of water like oceans and lakes are readily accessible when it's warm outside and we are always sad to see summer go. When the seasons change, it is not uncommon to see our swimmers swim patterns change as well; specifically related to the reduced frequency of being in the water. Have no fear there are year-round options that your swimmer can do to help minimize the effect of losing pool/water time and hitting the Fall-fall off.
