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.
2. Rolling Front to Back and Back to Front
Rolling and floating on your front and back is the second most foundational skill in swimming. If a child is comfortable with their face in the water and can keep themselves at the surface, it’s much easier for them to either call for help or keep breathing without swallowing water.
