We have all heard the saying, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” The obvious understanding of it is that you should take what is given to you and make the best of it. But what about taking what you already have and making something completely new?
The same goes for swim lessons, why stop there? The opportunities after one learns to swim are near infinite. Maybe your child/niece/nephew/cousin/grandchild doesn’t enjoy running up and down a grass field chasing a ball. Or the idea of being a human ping pong ball in a pool isn’t their idea of fun. From learning how to swim, one can become a surfer, a water polo player, a kite boarder, kayaker, free diver, scuba instructor, and the list goes on.
The ability to be comfortable in water is a necessity, especially for people living in a coastal city such as ours. But without the knowledge of how to swim, one has successfully cut out about seventy percent of the earth’s surface from themselves. Not to say one would want to scour the entirety of water that our world holds but that is looking too much into the previous sentence. All water athletes started with swim lessons.
Michael Phelps and Ian Thorpe didn’t just hop into a pool and understood butterfly off the break. Even Michael Phelps, when he was seven was scared to put his head under the water. Activity is healthy and productive for everyone. Whether you stick with swimming or those skills lead you to something completely different. The first step is always the most important. Start with swim lessons and the rest will fall in to place.
