Learn to swim 101

Many of the discussions in this blog have been created, in response to requests, from some of the parents and some of the adult beginners that I teach how to swim, to do a step by step guide on how to swim that they can follow outside of lessons.

I will do my best but I'm not sure just how step by step I can make it. I used to write such documents when I worked in the Telecommunications industry but learning to swim is different.

To start with you can't just say to some one I want you to do this and then I want you to do this and then this, when it comes to swimming. to try to do so would be to deny other factors such as physical status, fear, fitness etc.


These are factors that you don't have to account for when you are telling someone how to test a technical piece of equipment.

However with that in mind I shell endeavor to wright the best step by step guide I can.

The one thing I will say is that, I have found that is the most important factor in any student when learning how to swim or improving their swimming, is attitude.

You need to be willing to give things a go.

If you let anything, including fear win you are always going to have difficulty with succeeding.

However if you do give the suggestions in this blog a fair go you will see the results and be amazed!
Enjoy
