5 SECRET TIPS

on how you, or your children, can get rid of the fear of head immersion

Kids Starter Program

Respecting the needs of children by using a sensitive approach during lessons, creates a safe and happy environment where swimmers become friends with water quickly and allows them to progress.

Do you have children at home aged 4 – 7? Would you like them to be healthy physically, mentally and socially? Swimming lessons in groups are a perfect way for children to obtain all of these. Today we see most swimming schools offer an old style of learning and approach to the children in their education plans and swimming lessons. Sometimes we see lessons that fluctuate between two extremes – excessive drills and pointless games.

Gabriela Minaříková, founder of the Swim Smooth school in the Czech Republic, brings a unique approach to teaching swimming to children of this age. She has a 4-year old daughter herself, and is a professional in training and teaching to swim, and aims to give her daughter only the best. Together with her coaches, who have great pedagogical experience, Gabriela created a unique training plan directly based on the Swim Smooth approach and methodology whilst working with the youngest swimmers.

Children aged between 4 -7 years act and think completely differently to children a few years older. The best way to learn is not through the authority of adult but through friends and peers. That is why we offer a comprehensive swimming program accompanied by our two heroes – Plavel and Plavlína. The coaches use them to describe stories and use poems or songs to make it easier for children to understand the movements. Part of successful learning is the parent’s involvement – the coaches also teach the parents and then they teach their children. There is a significant improvement in their relationship and also in their communication outside the pool.

Words are tailor-made and are directly related to the activity, so children are not forced to say poems that are not related to swimming. Watch how Plavel and Plavlína help teach your children. Have a look at our first lesson with Edita in this article: “How did Plavel and Plavlína wash their faces (Czech version only)”. Once your children have reached the level to move up to a more advanced group, they can join the FUNdamental Blue Team.
