5 Things Your Swim Clo Instructor Does

Do you know what your swim instructor does to prepare for your child's lesson?  Read on to find out!

  1. They spend a lot of time preparing for your classes!  They rework and personalize your lesson plan before and after a session, and they worry about open house presentations.  Each lesson plan is personalized to your child, and they spend a lot of time revising techniques that suit your child’s learning ability.  They use their creativity skills to the maximum to think of new ways for your child to learn new techniques or to better grasp the concept of a technique.

  2. They miss spending time with their family!  Most swim classes run from 3-8pm, which means they are often in the pool spending time with their swim family rather than their own family at home.  They also often miss dinner, or eat a late dinner because they’re so busy preparing for your child’s success!

  3. Instructors are often waterlogged… they spend several hours in the pool with the students and by the end of the night, they get pruny, have achy feet, and smell permanently like chlorine!  

  4. They want every kid to succeed.  They may be firm, and strongly encourage your child to get into the pool, but that’s because they want your child to be the best they can be.  Our instructors genuinely love teaching, and want your child to see the improvements they make after each lesson to gain the confidence they need to succeed.

  5. They admire each swim mom, dad, grandparent that is part of the community.    The amount of dedication you spend taking your child to swimming lessons and other extra-curricular activities is admirable. Your time is much appreciated by the instructors, and by all of us at Swim Clo Aquatics.  We wouldn’t be able to operate without your support, and we want to thank you for entrusting your child’s swimming lessons to us!

Our swim instructors have been carefully hand picked and have gone through rigorous testing and training before we hire them.  All our instructors have their NLS, WSI and SFA certification, have their criminal record check, and are great with kids!

Why Swim All Year?

It seems natural to a lot of us that swimming lessons are a way of getinng ready for summer and so, come Fall and Winter, there is no reason to stay in lessons….. think again! Wondering why you should swim all year? 

Swimming is an important skill that should be pursued for several reasons:

  1. There may be other sports, but swimming should be viewed as a life skill akin to reading and writing.  Swimming may in fact save your child’s life, or possibly another person’s life. Just like at school, consistant practice is important for your child to develop their swimming skills, which is why we encourage having lessons all year round as much as possible!  Without consistancy, your child will naturally regress and you’ll find that next Winter or Spring, your child (and your wallet) will be doing some catching up!

  2. Swimming is ranked by professionals as one of the top three sports because it develops coordination, cardiovascular and muscular endurance.  It’s also low stress on their joints and growing bones due to the hydrostatic pressure, and teaches them how to control their breathing which would be beneficial for children with high stress, allergies or anxiety.

  3. Are you worried your child will be too tired from being at school all day to participate in an after-school swimming lesson?  Your child has been sitting at school for the majority of the day; being physically active will actually give them more energy!  Health Canada recommends that children have at least 60 minutes of exercise per day. We offer swimming lessons from 30, 45 and 60 minutes to accommodate your child’s growing physical activity needs!

  4. Swimming in a small group with other students will help develop social skill in your child!  Our lessons have a maximum of 4 - 5 students per session. That means our swim instructors have an opportunity to create a special bond with the class, and also to your specific child!  Your child will also learn to work with the other students, and to also create a friendship with them as well!

Swimming is a great all-around activity that can be practiced all year round.  It doesn’t have any weather requirements, just a love for swimming! Let us help nurture your children’s love to learn by registering today for our Fall swimming session (Sept 4 - Dec 23) at

WHY SWIM DURING THE SUMMER?

It’s summer break and you’re thinking “school’s out, that means all activities are also on hold until September!” right?  That is a common way to think, but there are benefits to continuing lessons for your child during the summer. Your child worked hard to get where they are now, so why let that go to waste?  If they take a 4 month break, they’ll need another 2-3 sessions before they are back in form, which detracts from their overall growth. Consistency is key to retaining a skill on a permanent basis; without it, your child will naturally regress!

If you’re looking for a safe activity that will entertain your little ones over the summer, consider taking a summer session this year!  We are running sessions at all our 4 locations and we are quickly filling up so register today! Our summer sessions are short term commitments.  Each session is a 2 week camp, giving you the flexibility to travel around sessions! Summer swimming lessons are an accelerated program with lessons running 30, 45 or 60 minutes daily from Monday to Friday for 2 weeks!  We have lessons from the morning to the evening, which allows your child the flexibility to schedule your day.

Are you going on vacation and want to make sure your child is comfortable in the water?  Register for a summer session as a crash course to prepare your child! Summer lessons are ideal for young children to allow them to get comfortable in the water.  In addition, daily practices leads to a quicker progression in skills, and will make them stronger. The accelerated summer camps will help prepare your child for your summer vacation pool times!

TOP 3 REASONS WHY SWIMMING LESSONS OVER WINTER IS THE WAY TO GO

Why stop something that can save your child’s life? Keep swimming this winter for the results you want, instead of wasting money on regaining the hard earned skills after an unnecessary break! 

#1. YOU WILL NOT CATCH A COLD FROM SWIMMING LESSONS!

Keeping your kids in regular swimming lessons over Winter with Swim Clo Aquatics will actually help them keep the bugs away! You better believe it! Pulling the kids out of Swimming lessons does more bad then good. The key to keeping kids healthy is good food choices and regular exercise! Physical activity strengthens the immune system, and therefore will help the body to fight the germs that we get when we suffer the common 'cold'. Added bonus is, we have warm showers at all Swim Clo Aquatics pools, so our swimmers can have a nice warm shower to finish off their fabulous lesson before heading back into the Winter weather! Keep swimming with Swim Clo this Winter Session: REGISTER TODAY!

#2. IT'S ALWAYS SUMMER AT SWIM CLO!

No need to fear the cold water this Winter, because it's Summer all year-round at Swim Clo! You and your kids will love our comfortable 84-86 degree pool environment! If you have a little tot or preschooler, we can appreciate it can be quite the task to bundle them up to go somewhere in the winter weather...BUT you will see that it is well worth it! Why? Because once you get to your Swim Clo pool, we have a fun and warm environment waiting for you!  Keep swimming with Swim Clo this Winter Session: REGISTER TODAY!

#3. WE CAN MAKE A TIGHT 'CHRISTMAS' BUDGET WORK!

We all know that the 'Happy Holiday' season can make our bank accounts not so happy, right?  But we encourage you to not let  your kids swimming skills pay the price. Your little ones have worked hard to get to where they are with their swimming skills, so why stop now? Consistency is the key to retaining a skill on a permanent basis. Without the consistency children naturally regress and you will find that come the Spring session your child, and your wallet, will be doing catch up! Make a good investment and keep them swimming over the Winter Session! If the financial investment of swimming lessons is still a concern, we have solutions! Firstly, you have the choice to reduce your budget and lesson duration to make your lessons more affordable. Secondly, you can refer a friend and get $50 credit! If you refer a friend who registers for the full session, we will take $50.00 off your invoice!  Keep swimming with Swim Clo this Winter Session: REGISTER TODAY!
