During Swimming Lessons
PLEASE DO NOT ALLOW YOUR CHILD TO DEMONSTRATE THE “FLOAT OR ROLL OVER TECHNIQUE” OUTSIDE OF OUR SUPERVISION until I am confident that they can execute them properly. At that point I will tell you, but it normally comes after their clothes checkout. This is for their safety!!!
Once your child has gone some time without swimming, typically winter months, your child will most likely have lost their confidence to swim and roll to float and act very timid of the water. This happens usually all the way up to 6 years old. Of course some children are different, and never lose their confidence to swim, but they may still lose their skills of self rescuing in a panicked situation. So it is very important every year to do a one 1 to 4 week spring refresher prior to taking them swimming. Refreshers are everyday Monday –Friday and they will remaster what they knew and move on to the next level.
Video Recording and Pictures
I love when people post pictures and videos on FB or social media it really helps spread the word about these lessons! please feel free to post and please tag me (Sarah Dodge, so other parents can reach out to me for these lessons :) However, on occasion, videos and pictures have been taken during the learning process and posted on social media with no explanation (for example: a clothes checkout) then people viewing the post may get the wrong idea of my lessons or untrained individuals may attempt these techniques on children and possibly put that child in danger. In addition, some think the clothes checkout is the first lesson, because it is the only video one has ever posted of the lessons :( SO Please for me, explain your videos. Thank you!
I do have a few rules for videoing lessons:
IN NO WAY DO THESE LESSONS REPLACE ADULT SUPERVISION AROUND WATER!!
Please continue to keep your pool fence up, alarms on, and pool doors locked! No child is ever considered "drown-proof". Even with the skills they will acquire, they are still children and cannot guarantee survival if they were to fall into water.
