content 21/05/2021

As the upcoming months begin to get colder and we enter into the winter season, it’s important that we are dressed appropriately for the weather so we keep warm before and after our swimming lessons!

Here our favourite tips to dress warmly:

Ugg boots

Thicker than thongs and quicker than sneakers. 

A beanie

Quick way to warm the face and head after swimming.

Gloves

An easy way to keep their hands warm after being in the pool.

Trackies

Easy to slide on and off before and after lessons.

Warm socks

These are a perfect match to a pair of uggs to keep your child warm walking outside.

Jacket 

An extra layer of warmth in case the rest aren’t enough!

  • Shoulder rotations: 10 forward each arm, 10 back each arm.

  1. Swim easy, with any stroke for 200m.
  2. Grab a kickboard with one hand and perform one-arm freestyle with the freehand for 100m (alternating arms every 25m).
  3. Move to your back, and do 2 laps of survival backstroke.
