Top 5 Water Safety Skills at SwimLabs Littleton

Posted on Aug 28, 2019 5:26:28 PM by Matt Nadel in Swimming lessons in Littleton, in SwimLabs, in swim technique, in bubbles to butterfly

At SwimLabs, our highest priority is teaching kids how to be safe in and around water! 

1. Blowing Bubbles and Bobs
Blowing bubbles with your face in the water is the first foundational skill for swimming.  Children must learn how to keep water out of their nose and mouth to become comfortable with their face in the water.  In an emergency situation, we want children to be more comfortable with having their face submerged so they can use their energy for life-saving techniques. If they are comfortable blowing bubbles, they also will not be swallowing water.

Swimming only got better as I joined my neighborhood summer team, and I knew from a young age that swimming was special and something different.
