I absolutely loved your outline of “the 10 things we should know about swimming lesssons”. I totally agree with everything. I personally was fortunate to spend summers at our family lake home since age 1 and all 4 of us kids took lessons at the Local YMCA in the cities where we lived. My 2 daughters also took 3 years of swimming lessons at the same YMCA. I now have 3 grandchildren and we all actually live ON THE LAKE THAT WE USED TO JUST SPEND SUMMERS AT. Anyway, they are all small and the oldest is 3 and a half. We did not get him registered in time for summer swim lessons but are hoping they will have a spot in the fall for him. I believe no matter how much we work with the kids on the lake and how much we believe they are learning that swim lessons from someone other than a parent or grandparent can be most beneficial. I am very excited to get Brooks into fall lessons and watch all his energy turn into actual swimming. Thanks for your Tips, am excited to show to both my daughters. Darla

The trainer should be well trained and very polite with their students. With the help of swimming, it helps children in future also maintains their body.
