Today you can come across many swimming schools in Miami. They mostly organize group lessons, which are short-term and less effective. But if you want to speed up the process of education, you need to hire a personal trainer, who will teach your child swimming at your location.

For children of 3 – 12 years old, swimming in the pool begins with overcoming the fear of water. This is especially true if the child is still at early age or does not possess the skills of keeping afloat. A personal swimming coach should be a good psychologist. If a child has difficulties, the coach will resort to interactive gaming techniques. With the help of the game, the child is distracted from the monotony of the exercises and makes a greater number of approaches. The coach selects games so that they match the skills of a child. After the games in the pool, the children are always in high spirits, they want to share their impressions and communicate.

When fear is overcome, children learn proper breathing. First, it is done as part of dry land and after in the pool. One of the easiest techniques to train breathing is to collect toys from the shallow end of the pool.

After mastering the breathing technique, the next step will be learning basic skills: proper detachment from the bottom, floating in a “starfish” position, exercises to coordinate movements and maintain balance. The main challenge is to teach a child to swim with a kickboard, after which he or she can proceed to mastering swimming strokes.

Specifics of Swimming Lessons for Teens

Methodologies of teaching teens are not the same as for little kids. They won’t play games and consider themselves to be grownups. That’s why, they require special swimming classes based on a unique program. A coach develops an individual program for every student because teens at the age of 13 – 19 are different and some of them have already obtained some swimming techniques that are wrong and require correction. This is the age when it is a high time to fix a bad posture and learn how to breathe properly. Swimming is the best way to obtain useful skills, to improve overall health and posture.

It is never too late and it is always a right time to teach your kid swimming! If you have a swimming pool at home, lessons with a personal coach may take place at your location or any pool of your convenience. Be sure that it is good for health and you will be impressed with the results!
