Weekly vs. Daily ~ Why We Chose To Take Weekly Swimming Classes!

Posted on: January 16th, 2016 by Chris No Comments

My kids have been swimming since they were younger than 2. We have a pool and there was no question that they would take swim lessons early. When I first started looking for the right place, I had two options. 1- Do a weekly class or 2- Take a daily class that lasted one full week.

We actually tried the daily class but it was a little overwhelming! Trying to make the class every day was actually hard with our busy schedule. It was also outside, the sun was extremely hot and there were a lot of distractions. So we opted for the first choice. And honestly when we found Emler Swim School we never looked back. For example, Emler runs three or four sessions a year and we have gone non-stop. It’s once a week and we go on Saturday mornings. It’s become a great part of our weekend routine.

Emler, very much like many swim classes, started us on their Waterbabies class. A parent is in the water with their child until he or she is comfortable being in the water. I’m amazed at how brave these little babies are. Wow. Then as you progress new techniques, new strokes and introduced. It’s all in an effort to make your little swimmer confident in the water.

As my kids graduated each class and got their little ribbon, they felt a sense of accomplishment. And for a 3 year old, that is priceless. It makes them want to go back for another session and really learn how to swim. Don’t get me wrong, there are some drawbacks. My daughter thinks it’s playtime — so she just wants to play in the water. I have loved our experience at Emler. The swim instructors are so patient with my kids and it makes a world of difference.

Here are the benefits I found to swimming weekly:
1- Teaching safety in the water –this is 1-10 on the important scale
2- A great form of exercise — my kids are always tired after swimming
3- Great for calming the mind — swimming does help relax your mind
4- Gets them in a regular routine — very much like school, this is part of their weekly schedule
5- Constantly learning how to swim — instead of all at once, this class teaches over a longer period of time
6- Ongoing encouragement — you get to know all the instructors over a period of time and they are always encouraging the kids to be smart in the water.
