T has now been swimming for over three years, with his first lesson occurring when he was less than a year old. Although it’s not ‘proper’ swimming (I’m talking front crawl, breast stroke, etc), T now knows what to do if he were to fall into water, and his confidence whilst in the water gives me confidence! He genuinely enjoys being in water – even from a young age.
This year, we became SwimFin ambassadors. If you’ve not heard of SwimFin, they’re the creators of the unique shaped Shark Fin swimming aid; created to give confidence to nervous swimmers whilst maintaining natural swim positions. Simply place the SwimFin high on the child’s back and no matter what stroke they’re performing they will be fully supported in the water.
