At Physique Swimming, our instructors are highly experienced, enthusiastic, supportive, and innovative. Our instructors come from diverse backgrounds, and are each deeply dedicated to helping our students achieve their goals as swimmers. The founder of Physique Swimming earned his Masters degree in Physical Education, and has over 25 years experience as a swim instructor and coach of competitive swimming. All Physique Swimming instructors are Red Cross certified for WSI, Lifeguarding, First Aid, and CPR.
We our proud of our Physique Swimming students for their many accomplishments, and believe in honoring these accomplishments accordingly. Upon completion of a swim level, each student receives a certificate of achievement; they then have it as a constant reminder of what they have achieved, and what they are capable of achieving in the future. Learning to swim takes time, practice, and patience, but the rewards are tremendous. We encourage our students, always, to keep trying, and to never give up; it is the surest way to achieving one’s goal.
Please make sure you have booked your child in a class that fits your schedule. In the event that you miss a class, make up classes are offered, but must be scheduled within the session. Class fees are nonrefundable after the first class. In the event that a class is canceled due to an emergency, Physique Swimming will make every effort to contact you prior to your class time, and we will work with you to schedule a make up class.
Parents, please try to talk about swimming as much as you can in your family. Let your child know you are proud of every task he or she attempts. Give them encouragement, and be understanding. Be patient and we’ll keep trying. Swimming is the hardest thing to learn. Give help, love, and praise.
Discuss with your child that repetition is important, when you learn something. Encourage your child to do as many repetitions as he/she can during the lesson.
Practice Makes Perfect…
- Don’t overset your Goals for your child. It is better to reset them from time to time in order to be more realistic for both you and your child. Never show disappointment or scold for something not done to your expectations.
- CRYING. There are different degrees and a certain amount is certainly expected and will be there from time to time. Don’t get upset. A little is OK.
- Don’t compare children! Let them progress at a pace that is right for them. They all have different temperaments and personalities.
- A young swimmer’s goal should be to tread water for two to three minutes and able to swim 300 yards.
Please have your child on the deck and on the place of instructions five minutes before class is ready to start. This gives us a chance to start on time.
Children should try to avoid eating an hour before class.
- No running on swimming pool deck.
- No chewing gum while swimming.
- Take shower and use a bathroom before entering the pool.
Take control of Young Swimmer Daily Exercise Routine. It will help your child learn easier in the water.
- Do not allow your child to get into the pool prior to the order of the instructor. Maintain your child in a learning mode not a playing mode.
- Remember to praise your child for their accomplishments after each class *children can never get enough encouragement!
- If there is more than one child in the class please do not compare their progress. Children learn at different paces but they ALL learn!
