Q. I don’t have a pool. Why does my infant or toddler need to learn how to swim/survival lessons?
A. Everyone comes in contact with water. We are surrounded by lakes, pools, rivers, even bathtubs. Survival swim lessons teach children how to enjoy and respect the water while learning aquatic risk management. The child learns where the air is and how to find it, even if he can’t walk. As the child grows, his aquatic skills mature with his physical and emotional age. A child who begins his aquatic career learning how to float to save his life, then learns to traverse a swimming pool with a swim, a float for air when needed, and then return to a swim. Before you know it, he’s a four-year-old who can swim freestyle and backstroke. He has learned a life-long skill.
