Second generation Water Safer O-Fish-L Swim Babe, Logan, has been swimming in our 90-92 degree Los Alamitos, CA pool since he was about one months old. Because of his weekly Born-To-Swim Experience (complimentary until 4 months old), he has grown up to love being in, under, and on top of the water.
As he has become more and more mobile on land, he has also learned what he is capable of doing in the water and what his boundaries are when floating independently. His progress has been possible because of his family’s commitment, and our loving teachers trained in the Smart Fish Method. This Method is also always progressing as well… as we discover new tricks and teaching tools in order to make teaching and learning easier and more fun. Our clean and cozy-warm sheltered swimming pool adds to why all this is possible.
Puddle Jumper is under this 6 month old Baby. The frames & fabric connecting the arm holes to the float are wedged under her arm pits.
It is an established fact that swimming is one of the best exercises for all of us irrespective of our age group. We also know that infants generally like to play in and around water, no matter where you find it – in a bucket, bowl, tub, sink or a pool. Realizing these aspects, more and more parents wish to pursue swimming with their babies not just to maintain good physical fitness but also because it is a great fun thing and helps to strengthen family bonds. Probably this is the reason that infant swimming lessons are always in very high demand.
As your babies learn to swim, their muscles get strengthened and show better coordination. Infants who practice swimming with their parents and instructors show higher level of self confidence and social experience. You have to be a responsible and caring parent for your child to develop and prosper in life.
While infant swimming lessons are immensely helpful to our kids, there are many other benefits accrue to your baby like basic swimming skills and water safety skills. You must play swimming pool games and activities like Mermaid Races, Shark in the Pool, Ping Pong, Treasure Hunt, Macro Polo, etc. to help your child to enjoy and to learn certain independent strokes in the water.
All the while, steer them towards the positives so to reinforce their confidence. After your positive praise your child will feel good inside and also feel sense of achievement and self confidence. Avoid to use negative words for them and just tell them “What they are doing good and what they should be doing to swim better”.

SFM Back Mat-Kicking, “Hold the edge of the mat with your hands.”
Step 1: When sitting on the wall while holding the mat:
Kick UP with the shoe lace part of the foot. Splash the water. Move the mat with your feet and the water.
Step 2: When swimming on your back while holding the mat:
Hold the mat with your hands, arms stretched STRAIGHT.
It must cover you knees.
– Do NOT hold the mat under your arms… on top of your belly.
Step 3: When hanging on the wall, doing vertical kicking against the wall:
– TRY DOING IT WRONG: Lean your head too far back, chin high. You will notice it is very uncomfortable.

* THEREFORE… IT IS BEST TO:
Keep your chin level. When you are on your back, look straight up.
Do NOT put your chin up too high.
