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 Experiences, in Swimming instructors, in Swimming tips from an instructor, in Parenting Tips

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.

How Swimming Lessons Made Family Vacations That Much Better

My son started swimming lessons when he was 6 months old. I remember being extremely excited about enrolling him in his first “activity,” but that all faded when he had no reaction to his swim class at all. He didn’t cry, but he definitely didn’t smile. He was unsure about the whole situation! His eyes were huge and he looked shocked during the whole first class. Like he wanted to say, “Mom, where are we and why is it so loud in here!” It took him a while to really enjoy swim lessons. He was a very quiet, calm, and shy baby.

Easton’s Swimming Adventures: Week #3

Week 3 started with so much excitement on the car ride over that I felt like I needed to run every red light just to get Easton there before it faded. Of course, his excitement was in part due to his assumption, (an incorrect one), that he was going to get another water gun from the Swimtastic “store” like he did after his first lesson. I did have to dash his hopes on that but did offer up a package of cookies from their snack area as a consolation prize. Surprisingly, he was cool with it.

Starting a New Activity With Your Child Can Be Tough

Posted on Jan 25, 2017 11:31:18 AM by Amy Bartek in kids swimming, in Swimming lessons, in Parenting Experiences, in Family Activites

Amy Bartek and her daughter Sawyer share their expereince from our Lincoln, NE location. 

Sawyer started her first swimming lesson on Jan 4th right after the Christmas break. I was a very nervous mother. I was uneasy about my child being in the water without me and concerned of how she was going to react and handle herself. Starting any new activity can be tough with your child, no matter if you have done this before with your other children or completely new to it like I was with swimming lessons.
