Can you believe that summer is only a few months away? I wanted to take a moment to share some important information that was shared with me. SwimKids of Georgia is always reminding me how vital it is to get your kids swimming before the summer swim season starts. Now is the best time to sign your children up for swim lessons. Taking lessons before the summer starts will build your child’s confidence and allow you to have more fun with your kids while in the water this summer.
SwimKids of Georgia’s lessons are different from any other swim school in the Cumming area. They are teaching children not just to swim, but how to self-rescue in case of an aquatic emergency. Without further ado, here are 4 beneﬁts of swim lessons with SwimKids of Georgia:
SAFETY & DROWNING PREVENTION
Year-round swim lessons should be part of a child’s life, According to the CDC, “from 2005-2014, there was an average of 3,536 fatal unintentional drownings (non-boating related) annually in the United States — about ten deaths per day. Also, about one in ﬁve people who have drowning related incidents are children 4 and under. Those stats never get easier to type up. The saddest part about drowning to me is that it is completely preventable. Children as young as six months can learn to roll onto their back and float.
The Swim-Float-Survive program at SwimKids of Georgia offers a unique style of infant swim lessons that has been perfected over many years by owner and principal swim instructor Nadyne Siegel-Brown. With 33 years and nearly 10,000 children taught, they offer unparalleled knowledge and experience when it comes to swimming instruction and survival swimming, teaching children the necessary and vital skills to save themselves from drowning.
RETENTION OF SKILLS
Starting your child in swim lessons now will give them the time to learn the skills and practice them before summer hits. Just like any sport, repetition makes all the difference. And you know what “they”, say…”practice makes perfect!”
SwimKids of Georgia has an indoor pool that’s warm and always ready for lessons!
ENGAGEMENT FOR KIDS
Most of our kids have a busy school schedule. Swimming gives them an opportunity to burn off lots of energy. When you give your child the chance to get in the pool they get to escape the daily rigors of school and homework for a bit. It is something fun and freeing for them to look forward to after school. And when they are having fun and enjoying their time in the water, it will be a much more successful lesson. Once they graduate from private lessons, they begin to attend group lessons to expand upon their skills.
THE ELEMENT OF FUN + IMPROVING CONFIDENCE
Did you know that having your child in a group swim lesson is proven to increase conﬁdence in both the pool and social setting? It’s true! Group swim lessons teach your children how to support and root for one another while still improving themselves. It’s good for them to be in a group and have a common goal.
Also, at the end of the day kids are kids. And they need to have fun no matter what they are doing after school. In swim lessons, they will experience joy, laughter, and lots of positive interactions with other kids and adults. The coaches at SwimKids of Georgia get to know and love your kids. They will know all about them – things they like and don’t like. Their coaches build solid relationships with the students and that makes all the difference.

LEARN MORE ABOUT NADYNE SIEGEL-BROWN (OWNER) AT SWIMKIDS OF GEORGIA:
Nadyne has been teaching aquatic survival since 1987, dedicating her life to saving children from drowning. Her focus is on teaching infants, toddlers, and young children proper survival skills and educating parents and caregivers on the layers of aquatic protection. Her passion is contagious, and most of her young students develop a love for swimming, which translates to a lifelong sport for health and well-being.
A message from Nadyne: Growing up in Central Florida, water has always been a huge part of my life. In 1986 I was introduced to aquatic self-rescue for infants and toddlers when I enrolled my 18-month-old in such a program. I was a water baby and that’s what I wanted for my son. Watching Jacob’s aquatic transformation inspired me to become an instructor. Searching for a gentler and more comprehensive approach to teaching swimming, Aquatic Specialist of Atlanta and then SwimKids of Georgia was born. Today, I am continuously honing my skills by learning new and innovative ways of teaching swimming from other instructors in the aquatics field. My young students never cease to amaze me with their aquatic abilities and their love for the water.
Over the years, I have received calls and letters from parents whose children have experienced an aquatic accident. Whether at a pool, lake, or hot tub, parents are incredibly relieved to find that their children have saved themselves. “The lessons really work!” It also gives me great pleasure to see so many of my students move on to competitive swimming both in summer and year-round teams. The satisfaction gained from working with these children is the reward for all my efforts, and I look forward to waking up and going to work every day. I want to thank you for your interest in SwimKids of Georgia home of Infant Aquatic and I hope that you will take the steps to give your child the edge that could possibly save his/her life.
