Swimming teacher

Post by Wannabe Mermaid » Thu, 07 Apr 2005 3:18 pm

Hi
Anyone knows of a good swimming teacher who can take classes for my husband and myself at our condo pool or at the Community Pool? :)

We have learnt basic stuff, but we now need someone who can teach us the breathing bit and other strokes within a specified number of classes (our last teacher would just pass time and charge us for each class without much being taught in each class) :roll: !!

Also would anyone know what would be the charges???

Thanks!!!

Alternatively, you can teach yourself. Basically, if you can do the basic "breaststroke" whilst permanently keeping your head above the water, it is just a matter of practising the "bobbing up & down"...
...practice ....practice ....practice.....

and once you have got the rhythm of bobbing up and down and coordinating the breathing, that is all you really need to know.

Seriously, I was only able to do the breaststroke whilst keeping my head above water all the time. But, then a friend told me that I should practice the bobbing up & down... After much practice, i finally got it (without supervision or tuition)...and because of that I feel like a much more proficient swimmer, and at ease in the water.

YOU CAN DO IT!!!!

:cry: Can old folks like myself learn to swim, when I don't like to get my head wet? I've tried to learn twice, once the coach (30 yrs+ ago) threw up his hands and said I was a no hope! Haven't tried since.... :oops:

Dun give up... there is no time-limit on learning...i.e. you do not have to learn before a certain age. For myself, swimming was just a matter of practice, and then more practice. Of course, you might need some technical instruction and pointers now and again...but, between that time you need to practice, and work out the "rythm" of swimming for yourself. People learn physical movements (such as dancing, martial arts) at different rates. Go to a formal class to get the technical instruction...but if you are not picking up the knack of swimming as fast, don't worry about it Practice in our own time.
