Swim For Your Life at Shrewsbury Health And Racquet Club
The World’s Largest Swimming Lesson
It is important to understand that there is always a risk to consider with swimming, as without the proper supervision or instruction, it can be very dangerous. This is why at SHARC we find it so important to make sure that we are teaching everyone from children to seniors how to feel confident in the water. Did you know that of the 50% of American’s that can swim would not be able to pass a First Aid swimming test? We teach you how to swim, not how to not drown. In fact, this summer SHARC is participating in The World’s Largest Swimming Lesson where waterparks, pools and other aquatic facilities all over the world come together to teach the importance of water safety!
SHARC Special Swimmers
Our dedicated instructors understand that everyone learns differently and at different paces. Special Swimmers is a new program at SHARC that will strive to provide a positive, welcoming, fun atmosphere for those with special needs. We want these children to come learn and explore the wonderful properties of the water in a safe nurturing environment. Here at SHARC a swim instructor will work with all special needs children ages 4-17 in private and semi-private lessons on your schedule. We want to help ensure that each child who swims with us has the best experience possible; to do this we will make an individual lesson plan for each child.
Here are some thoughts we consider when creating a customized lesson plan:
How does the child communicate?
How do we best motivate the child (music, toys, etc.) to help get the child to do something he/she may not want to do?
What has been the past swimming experience?
Does the child like water?
What are both the child and parent’s goals for these lessons?
Using our experience, visual aids, props, music, games and/or toys to aid us in addressing problems like helping you child learn how to control their body, to prevent excessive water drinking, help get over the dislike of being on their back, and not wanting to go under the water. This program will not only focus on teaching swimming skills, but we will also focus on teaching lifesaving safety skills as well.
All of our swim instructors are Lifeguards as well as First Aid and CPR Certified. Looking to make a splash? Learn more about all of SHARC’s aquatic programs, lessons and fitness classes at http://www.shrewsburyclub.com/
