How did it start?

My daughter is in charge for all the things and my want to indulge her in the perfect, lead her to swim, train her to like water and transfer within the water easily – as naturally as sea creatures! I train her via play, which may be very efficient and fairly completely different from how most adults be taught via drills.

I began writing a swimming instruction methodology for my swim college which I based in 2013. Now our methodology of swimming with Plavel and Plavlína is prepared and it wins the hearts of swimmers. Lots of of kids have already efficiently handed our programs, and we’ve helped these whose dad and mom thought they might by no means be taught to swim. Every single day we large adjustments within the kids on our programs however sadly we additionally see dad and mom attempting to show their kids to swim on their very own. Basically they wrestle to do this – it could be significantly better in the event that they knew the right way to do it and revered a number of easy rules. And that’s what this guide is all about.

Actually everybody 😊wants the eight primary guidelines. To be taught to like water, to reside with it completely, to be a pal of it who can get out and in safely. Breathe correctly within the water, transfer in all instructions, lie on it and let your self float. Bounce, dive, orient your self beneath the floor, stroke the water and have the sensation to seize it. Solely then begin with the primary swimming stroke... and rather more.

Consider me I do know, I practically drowned as soon as after I was 4 years previous. Happily, all the things turned out properly and water is an inseparable pal for me now.
