When dealing with beginners it's important to build trust! We often see teachers and parents telling children to swim out to them and then as soon as the child strikes out they move backwards, extending the swimming distance. This can have disastrous results by destroying the child's confidence and progress as well as breaking any trust that has been built. Learn how to teach beginners and build their confidence, link in bio.

“What is the best way for my child to learn how to swim?” is a common question we get from parents. The answer is simple...All-year round swim lessons! 🤗
When learning any skill, consistency is key and progress is made over time. The same applies to becoming a strong swimmer! 🏊♀️
Year-round swim lessons allow students to retain, practice and improve their skills!
Start your child with us this winter! 😃This will give them the opportunity to keep improving their water safety skills and have you both feel at ease anytime he or she is around water! 💦🐠
Kids absolutely love jumping into the pool. But make sure it’s done safely and under supervision. It’s a good idea to get children to place their toes over the edge. This will allow them to push out. Make sure children are spaced out evenly to give them plenty of room to land safely. Ensure they are jumping away from side or the pool and pool ledge. Check that the water depth is safe for jumping. ALWAYS teach children to wade into murky water or water with an unknown depth. Remember rivers, creeks, tidal areas, rock pools will have submerged objects like rocks and branches which move around. 🖐 #poolfun#watersafety#thinkbeforeyoujump

It's important to know – in all but rare cases, especially for children, a person who is drowning CANNOT call for help. Bodies are designed to focus on breathing before anything else, meaning they will physically be unable to waste any air on a call for help. Do not wait for someone to yell. Instead watch for signs of drowning, including bobbing up and down in the water, lack of kicking, being face down in the water, and possibly overall unresponsiveness. Stay alert, and watch your kids and friends closely in the water.
Busy week for us, yesterday spent out on the water with @slsnorthern and @yamahamarinenz
We use our @beachwheelsnz dolly to easily move our watercraft across all terrains and easily disassembles for transport at the end of the day.
