She was BORN to swim!
Many of you readers know that Allison has ALWAYS loved to swim. We've just done the bar minimum in swim lessons... until this summer. Several of our friends have their kids go to Wichita Swim Club, so we decided to give it a try. There were several sessions, 2 weeks (Monday-Thursday) long with lessons 30 minutes long. I signed both kids up for 3 of the 4 sessions.
Today was the last day of summer sessions, but based on the results both kids will be continuing these lessons during the school year. Allie finished ready to start level 5!!!! These are the skills she completed to reach this goal.
ready position from walls to streamline
swim Freestyle 50 yards
swim Backstroke 50 yards
Freestyle Catch Up drill
Breaststroke Separation drill/timing
Long shallow dive with correct streamline position
Know Individual Medley (IM): Butterfly, Backstroke, Breaststroke, Freestyle
I'm not saying she's heading for the Olympics... but if someone starts drowning I'm betting she can save us!
