  • If age appropriate, let the child decide what to practice/learn.
  • Watch the swim lesson with your child (if age appropriate) that you are going to practice on that day telling the child that he can do it too!
  • Tell your child that this is "swim school" and that you are the teacher
  • Make notes of what you want to practice or print each lesson description from the website prior to going to the pool
  • Give a five minute warning before you end the practice or lesson.
  • Watch the dvd and any videos and pictures that you took, to review and reinforce what you've accomplished and what you will work on next.
