School’s out and summer vacation is upon us. This year, our big plans center around one thing: swim lessons.
William took lessons last year, but this year is the twins first year of real, big kid swim lessons. They couldn’t be more excited, and I couldn’t be more relieved.
My kids are at a frustrating, and terrifying, phase of swim instruction where they have far more confidence than skill. They are also old enough to be invited for pool parties and swim playdates. To say that it’s stressful to manage three children who think they are skilled swimmers when they are just beginners is an understatement.
The swim lessons they’ve been taking at our local YMCA have been extremely helpful, but we’ve also looked for wearable flotation devices that can keep the kids safe as their skills sharpen. SwimWays has been a perfect solution.
Katie absolutely loves her SwimWays Step 2 Swim Vest! First of all, it’s pink and purple, so she couldn’t wait to put it on. She also loves having freedom of motion along with the help with her buoyancy.
Emma is all about the SwimWays Step 3 Power Swimr. She can move her arms and legs just like in swim class, allowing her to practice all her strokes and water skills. The Power Swimr is absolutely perfect for the girls as they continue to learn to swim and practice in the water. The graduated support of the Power Swimr give me, as a parent, a real “swim training system” to use with my girls, like training wheels for the pool! The adjustable cords on the sides and support strap on the bottom provide a super safe, super snug fit. Plus, there are 9 removable floats in the Power Swimr, allowing me to make adjustments based on my child’s swimming ability.
Emma is my adventurous, over-confident girl, so I’m extra thankful for the Power Swimr. It keeps her safe while letting her practice the skills she needs to become more independent in the water. Hopefully, with the help of her SwimWays Step 3 Power Swimr, her swimming skills with soon rise to meet her estimation of those skills.
If you have an over-confident child like mine who needs a little help in the water, or if you have a reluctant swimmer who needs assistance to give them the courage to practice, I highly recommend SwimWays products, especially the Step 3 Power Swimr. You can find it, and the Step 2 Swim Vest, at your local Toys R Us store or online at ToysRUs.com. Here’s to a safe, swim-filled summer!
