Fear of Water to Loving the Water Swimming Curriculum©™ | top
line
This class was designed due to our encounter that not everyone has a love of water. The best means to overcome this situation is through One on One Classes.

Let us first say FEAR IS REAL

swim swim swim I SAY defines the fear of water as individuals who:

1) Have a fear/panic reaction to being in the water
2) Getting their face wet in the shower, pool etc. is not acceptable
3) In the shower, wetting their head or having water poured over their heads will not happen
4) Fear that they can't stand in water even though they can stand at a shallow depth
5) Is not comfortable with having their hair washed in a shower setting
6) Getting water in the tip of their nose makes them react as if someone is killing them
7) Had an experience as a child or adult of a dunking under water, close drowning or uncomfortable experience in the water

6 foot The above situations are very intense and real to many people. swim swim swim I SAY has worked with many students in who many or all of the above fears have been seen. In addition to our hands on experience, this vast aquatic knowledge allowed us to formulate a well tested curriculum to truly help our students.

Class size is another very important component to all individuals working through a fear of water. That is why swim swim swim I SAY will only teach fear of water students in a one-on-one classes. This will maximize the attention and development of everyone's learned skills. Moreover, a consultation or open discussion with the students and the instructor in a class setting is encouraged to reveal everyone's fear. You may ask, "Why is this necessary or important?" This affords the instructor a starting point and others in the class to know they are not alone in their fear or what causes their heightened state.

The class pace is intentionally slow; the level of comfort for our clients is our main concern. From our experience of working with fear of water clients, 16 sessions of lessons are the average number of classes to get over the fear. Please understand, if a client completes the fear of water swimming curriculum in less sessions, the instructor will automatically advance the student to the next classes.

swim swim swim I SAY will work with any student to overcome their fear of water. All we ask of you is to trust us to get you over your fear in a controlled environment. We welcome you to change your life with this commitment

** Disclaimer: There is no guarantee that all skills listed under each Level will be achieved by all students. Skill development is solely based on a student's ability to learn and perfect a skill. In addition, skills listed in the next level may also be added to a class if the student is ready for the skill.
