Coach Kathy works with kids on basic pool safety before advancing to skills and technique

Jump In, Turn Around.

Learning to crawl out of the water is really important especially when they’re small. One of the things we do regularly as part of this whole progression has them jump in, turn around, and hold on to the same wall from which they just jumped.  So many kids get into trouble if they fall in the water or they’re pushed in the water and they try to get to the other side, and they can’t get there and that’s when they get into trouble.

If they’ve learned through our lessons where they jump in and turn right around and hold on they’re gonna be safe.
