Quick tips to set my child up for success in swim lessons

Every year in the United States, nearly 800 children under the age of 15 die in drowning accidents. Nearly half of those children are under the age of 5 years old. At Safety 1st Aquatics, we are committed to irradicating these tragedies once and for all, as well as providing people of all ages the skillset they need to not only be safe in and around the water but to also have a fulfilling relationship with the water and its associated activities.

Of course, this is a large goal to achieve, and the process of closing the gap between water incompetency and water competency in the United States comes down to one simple step – learning how to swim. If a child does not know how to swim, the risk associated with falling in water deeper than they can stand becomes substantially greater. However, if they know how to swim, the risk of drowning goes down tremendously. 

This is why we have set up our business in such a way as to provide nationwide service across the entire United States. Our clients who work with us receive professional service, and we always fulfill our promise. However, learning to swim is something that requires yours and your child’s participation, and how you and your child participate can have an impact on their success in swim lessons. 

For the average adult looking to help their child get the most out of swim lessons, there are a few tips that can set your child up for success. Beginning with understanding the process and what they will need, as well as different mental strategies that lead to improved learning capabilities. Let’s dive in!
