Believe it or not it's quite common for even the happiest little swimmer to have a period where they may be unsettled in the water and not appear to enjoy their lessons anymore. Many of our best and most successful swimmers have been in that situation for a while and come through to be our best swimmers!!
Sadly this is quite often the time when parents question whether to continue or not. Our advice is YES!! Don't stop now, they will get through it.!!! You want to give your child a positive message that swimming is fun and worthwhile rather than quitting and giving a negative lasting message.
Taking a Break? In most circumstances your Teacher will advise against taking a break at this stage as this can often extend the problem to a later date rather than end it.
It's also important to attend as many lessons as possible in a term as breaks of a few weeks can also amplify the problem and undo progress made previously.
Instead our Teachers will work with you to recommend the best activities in each lesson to get your child back into their swimming. Read on for some Top Teacher Tips.
