LEARN2SWIM for Ages 6-8

There is a simple formula for children…

When children have fun, they learn. When children learn, they improve. When children improve, they enjoy success. When children enjoy success, they gain confidence. When children are confident, well… what more would you want as a parent than a child who is learning, improving, enjoying success, and gaining confidence?

When children are comfortable, when they are encouraged to play, to experiment, to have fun, they make incredible gains.  Its when success, results, performance are placed as initial and immediate expectations that problems arise. Believe it or not, the same also applies to adults.

jTOEST offers a Learn2Swim program specifically for Juniors (ages 6-8). Our program follows the formula outlined above: fun filled sessions helping juniors become comfortable in water. When comfortable we are open to learning and the best way to get comfortable is to have fun. Through skill based games and specific instruction in FUNdamental stroke skills, juniors will learn the kicks necessary for freestyle, backstroke and butterfly. With kicking mastered, juniors will then learn to add their arms.

Sessions are: 30mins long, private (i.e. 1 swimmer : 1 coach), held Saturday evenings at Cedar Springs Health Racquet & Sportsclub, and the cost is $135 (all in) for 4 sessions.

All coaches are experienced competitive swimmers, triathletes, and open water swimmers.

To participate, swimmers will need:

  • a bathing suit (a suit for swimming is highly recommended as opposed to a fashion suit),

  • fins specific to competitive swimming (see image), and well fitted goggles.

A swim cap is encouraged for long hair, if not then long hair needs to be tied back so that it isn’t constantly in the swimmers face.
