Summer is coming! Are your kids ready for the pool? I know my kids are not. It’s a scary feeling when you want to take the kids swimming and you know that they can’t. That’s why I decided to give Love to Swim School a try. We love it and here’s why…..
Two weeks ago all three of the kids started swim lesson at Love to Swim School right here in San Antonio. With summer coming up, I wanted to make sure the kids were ready for all the long days we plan on spending at the pool. With Love to Swim always having heated pools and being inside it’s never too early or too late for them to have lessons.
Being that I just had surgery, I loved that Love to Swim School had multiple swim lesson, at different times making it extremely easy to make their lessons at an appropriate time of the day. This will also come in handy with working around school and a day job if needed.
There is nothing more pleasing to a parent than to see their kids have tons of fun all while learning a life-long, life-saving skill. Nolan, Luke, and Ryan have all been having a blast and count down the days until their next lesson.
Love to Swim School Mission
It is our mission to develop students of all ages into happy, confident, masterful, lifelong swimmers. At Love to Swim School, swimmers have fun, parents see results, and coaches get to do what they love. Everybody wins! We live by our Core Values and believe in our Vision
When you first arrive your child will get a wristband like in the picture above. This band marks their place or group. All children in the group are in similar swim levels. Nolan, for now, is in a beginners group until his skills in the water develop.
Once you’re signed in they have ‘Ready Benches’. A place for your child to sit and anxiously wait to be called into the pool area.
Each swim group is accompanied by one coach. Nolan’s group had two other students. As I sat and watched her teach the children I was amazed at the patience she had for my ADHD child who only seemed interested in jumping up and down in the water.
Love to Swim School Staff
All Love to Swim School coaches undergo extensive training that includes 40 hours of in-water training and 12 hours of classroom training. Training elements include: curriculum, classroom management, child development, lesson planning, organization and customer service. Additional on-going training is provided through monthly staff meetings, in-service trainings, U.S. Swim School Association and American Swimming Coaches Association conference attendance and professional skill development programs.
I was excited to see that he was paying attention to her and gave it his all when it was his turn.
Overall the last two weeks have been a blast and the children have loved every second of it. They wish their lessons were longer and cannot wait for more pool time. I’m also excited for my wounds to heal so that I’m able to take the boys to open swim nights with the family.
