Swimming Seniors: You Can Teach an Old Fish New Tricks!

Posted on Jan 15, 2019 1:30:36 PM by Sandra Shawver, PhD in Swim Lessons for Adults, in Swimtastic, in swimming health tips, in adult swim lessons, in competitive swimming

When people think about swim lessons, most associate them with small children, which is great since learning skills when young forms habits that continue throughout a lifetime. At Swimtastic Swim Schools, our primary target is to promote water safety in the young and get future generations loving the water. But what we are also seeing in our markets is many adults do not know how to swim. Most of these adults, in the 50 plus segment, cite a bad water experience as a child and have since stayed out of the water due to fear of drowning. Many also never had the opportunity to learn basic swim strokes or competitive strokes when they were younger. Luckily, Swimtastic does provide adult lessons as an ongoing program. We are able to provide our adult students with privacy and the confidence needed to get over years of fear of the water and ensure their water safety.

Defining Your Own Success

Posted on Aug 17, 2018 5:40:01 PM by Laura Dravenstott in success, in Missy Franklin, in Swimming Community, in competitive swimming, in U.S. Swimming National Championships

“It’s one thing to inspire all these little girls by winning a bunch of medals. That’s easy. But it’s another thing entirely to be an inspiration when things aren’t exactly going your way.”

Missy Franklin, Relentless Spirit: The Unconventional Raising of a Champion

Few people describe winning a bunch of medals, especially gold medals, as Missy did at the 2012 London Olympics, as “easy.” It’s difficult to win a race at any meet, let alone in the most competitive swim meet in the world. Despite the difficulty and the rarity of winning or setting a record, the swimming world and American culture as a whole glorify winning, setting records, making PR’s, sustaining dominance. A definition of success based on fast times and victories can be seductive but also dangerous to a swimmer’s well-being, as Isabelle Robuck explains in “Defining Success Beyond Fast Times and Medals Just Might Save Your Swimming Career (and Life)”.

SwimSwam interviews an emotional Missy Franklin still determined and focused on Tokyo 2020!

As a 5-time Olympic gold medalist who has broken multiple world records during her swimming career, Missy Franklin has had to face the pressure and expectations that go along with being one of the sport's swimming superstars. It was also her first time swimming in a U.S. meet since 2016. She trained and swam hard but finished at a disappointing 17th and 19th place in the 100 (55.33) and 200 free (1:59.25). In an interview after her races, Missy showed she was not going to let this performance deter her from higher aspirations and displayed a warrior's spirit and an inspiring level of professionalism even through a sometimes shaky voice.
