For busy moms (and dads!), the end of the school year is a welcome break from all the classes, activities, homework battles and packing the perfect lunch. So after that last bell rings, most of us are looking to hang up the “Mom Taxi” keys, right? Totally get it. But listen: With summer comes beach trips, pool parties and boating. In other words: WATER. So, while you may think your children can take a break from swim lessons now that school’s out, you really shouldn’t.
Believe me. I know your family is busy in the summer. Graduation parties, vacations, trips to the beach and oh-so-much-more take up tons of time now that school is out.
Look at it like this: You don’t want your child to lose valuable reading skills in the summer, so you visit the library or join a reading program, right? To obtain the extraordinary results that Swimfinity Academy lessons provide, your child needs to constantly practice the skills he or she has been learning.
Keep Getting Stronger
Not only will staying in swim lessons all summer ensure your little goldfish doesn’t backtrack, it’ll help ensure he or she will continue to grow as a swimmer!
Stick with a Routine
Sure, the first week or two of summer vacation is full of go-go-go and endless excitement over the freedom. But inevitably, there will be days of “What do we do today?” when all you want to do is not think about planning anything. Sticking to lessons over the summer keeps the routine going, which helps reign in summer chaos — and actually helps when school starts again. Your family will already be used to swim days and it will make things easier when fitting in any new activities.
Seriously, swimming is FUN! And since summer is supposed to be the pinnacle of fun for kids, keeping them in lessons is really helping your kids have a good time! How’s that for an awesome summer vacation?
