New swimmers start by blowing bubbles. #learntoswim #swimcoach #loudouncounty 04/29/2024

Summer swim season is almost upon us. So, as we approach summer, I will be sharing some tips for helping teach your young swimmer some basics. To find all these tips, you will be able to easily search for .

Today is day 2:

Blowing bubbles is a fundamental skill for beginner swimmers. It helps them regulate their breathing and become comfortable with submersion.

Here's an example of how we want to blow bubbles. Each child will approach the initial learning in a number of ways by blowing bubbles:

in a bathtub
in a kiddie pool
while hold on to their parent/guardian
while standing in water or a pool
while holding on to a floating device
while holding on to the side of a pool

No way is incorrect as long as the ultimate goal of blowing bubbles is reached.

Here is what it can look like:
https://youtube.com/shorts/T571mtFAVWA?si=_GqPzAwO27HBjGfb

Now, let’s talk about how to do this technique:

1. Demonstrate the Technique: Show the child how to blow bubbles by taking a deep breath and then exhaling slowly through both the nose and mouth while submerged in the water. Make sure to demonstrate it clearly and calmly.

2. Encourage Relaxation: Encourage the child to relax their facial muscles and maintain a steady rhythm of breathing while blowing bubbles. Remind them that it’s okay to exhale continuously and not hold their breath.

3. Start with Small Submersions: Begin by having the child submerge just their mouth and nose in the water while holding onto the pool’s edge or a floating device for support. Encourage them to blow bubbles gently as they exhale.

4. Gradually Increase Submersion: As the child becomes more comfortable, encourage them to submerge their entire face in the water while blowing bubbles. Start with short durations of two seconds and gradually increase the time spent underwater as they gain confidence. You may need multiple lessons for this if the child has a fear of water, particularly water covering their face or ears.

5. Use Positive Reinforcement: Offer praise and positive reinforcement to the child for their efforts, regardless of their initial success. Encourage them to keep trying and assure them that it’s okay to take breaks if they feel overwhelmed.

I love when I get updates like this from my adult triathletes! Back up a couple of months and this swimmer could barely get from one side of the pool to the other without stopping. There was a mental block we needed to work through, and we did. Couple that with a purchase of a tempo trainer and this athlete has gone far beyond what I expected in just a few short months!

From the athlete:

“Quick update…things are progressing well. I’m swimming 2300 yds 3 x week consistently. Typically I’m swimming 500 - 800 yd intervals during my practice sessions.”

There’s so much to celebrate about this text! Way to go!!! Your race is going to be amazing! 😁😁😁

Summer swim season is almost upon us. So, as we approach summer, I will be sharing some tips for helping teach your young swimmer some basics. To find all these tips, you will be able to easily search for .

Today is day 1:

It’s important to know the safety rules of swimming. According to the American Red Cross, "Ten people die each day from unintentional drowning, and on average, two of them are under age 14." Additionally, they state: "Drowning is responsible for more deaths among children ages one to four than any other cause except birth defects." Therefore, teaching these essential tools to your children is of utmost importance.

When learning to swim, it’s important to be in a calm pool with lifeguards on duty. This helps to ensure their safety.

There’s lots of ways to get in and out of the water but there’s fewer ways to get in and out of the water safely. One of the ways is to use a ladder, steps or stairs, searching for any hazards nearby and ensuring your child moves slow into and out of the water.

Diving 🚫
Jumping in head first 🚫
Jumping in feet first 🚫 (not while learning)
Running and jumping 🚫
Flipping 🚫

One alternative way to get into the water is to gently slide yourself in like the video below.

LEARN TO SWIM TIPS

Mostly for children age 2+ that don’t know how to swim and are maybe a little frightened putting their head under water.

BLOWING BUBBLES:

Have your child submerge just their lips in the water and blow bubbles. This will help them with breath control and help prevent swallowing water as they start learning to go underwater. It’s best to do this away from other kids that are stirring up the water a lot.

If your child is hesitant, demonstrate this first. When you take your mouth out of the water, make sure you have a smile on your face. This will help show your child that there is nothing to be afraid of.

A Brief History of Swimming Goggles 12/28/2023

Goggles. Coaches always say it’s the biggest swim procrastinator there is! There’s even memes out there about that very subject.

I tell my swimmers about a time when goggles didn’t really exist and they think I’m lying! But, the reality is 1) I’m old and 2) goggles (and swim caps) weren’t even introduced in the Olympics until 1972! But, that doesn’t mean the general public wore them! It would be years later before I personally wore a pair of swim goggles.

So, if you or your swimmer want to go without them - go for it! The rest of us survived without them! 😂

A Brief History of Swimming Goggles Swimming goggles have been the swimmer's blessing and curse for as long as we can remember. Swimming without them can mean sore eyes; swimming with them can mean clouded vision, stopping constantly to adjust the headband and goggle eyed when finished (or maybe that's just me). They seem like such a....
