Front Float
Floating is a skill often neglected by teachers and parents eager to see children swimming from point A to point B in the pool. However your young swimmer will far be better off if they have mastered the skill of floating. The Ability to float shows that a child is relaxed in the water and ready for more complex skills. Nervous or anxious kids will always move when placed in the water because subconsciously they are not comfortable. Relaxed muscles also use less oxygen so if your child falls into water accidently, they are far better chance of getting to safety if they are relaxed.
