Water confidence....

Some children are confident in the water from the start, and water on their face does not phase them. If this is your child, then this is great! 👍

For the majority of children, having water on their face is really unnatural and can make them panic! To overcome this, swimmers need to practice having water over their faces and heads. They may dislike it, so making it fun through games, songs, and play can help them adjust more easily, if your child is nervous with water.

Lots of gentle encouragement is key for helping this, and also, if they see you happy in water, this can also help.

Our lessons at Elite encourage water confidence as a fundamental. If you have a young child, then preschool and baby lessons are great for this. For our school-aged swimmers, our beginner group also build water confidence, through gentle practice.

If you are a working parent, and want to still enrol your child onto our intensive swimming week we have 3 remaining slots at 5.30pm-6pm for Non-Swimmers at this time!

We also have some earlier slots available for swimmers that want earlier swimming lessons in various abilities, so please let us know if you are thinking of joining our intensive swimming week.

These lessons are a great springboard into learning to swim, when completing back to back daily swimming lessons, the swimmers remember what they have learnt each day and are able to excel further through the stages in a shorter time.

Come and learn at Elite School of Swimming! We can't wait to teach you to swim.
