The past two weeks, Daniel has been in Round Two Swimming Lessons. This class was a step up from his last class. I was a little disappointed because I thought they went through the strokes and kicks two quickly and covered WAY too much for a class with a 4 year old (Daniel) and 5 other 6 year olds.
They taught a stroke a day, which meant only half an hour on each stroke. None of the kids got it.
The only thing I think Daniel really got out of this particular class (besides lots of great exercise and fun swimming with mommy before and after class) was that he did learn to tread water in the deed end. He can’t keep himself up forever but he can for a good 10 seconds before he starts to go under. He’s also a “slicer” (arms moving side to side) versus a doggie paddler (that would be me!).
Of course on the last day he got to jump off the diving board, his favorite thing!
While we’re done with swimming lessons this year, I think we’ll repeat this class next year before moving up to a different class regardless of what they say.
