How do you ensure that babies and small children dont drink or choke on the water?
Babies are born with a “swimmers reflex.” This reflex stays strong for the first 200 days of life. Basically, this means children involuntarily hold their breath when submerged in water, as the environment mimics their surroundings in the womb. In addition, our instructors use a method of teaching in which repetitive motions and verbal cues are used so that students are expecting the submersion. It truly becomes natural and effortless for students, at any age, to learn to hold their breath and swim comfortably.
