I was just talking with a good friend this week about water safety. She is a swim instructor and couldn’t stress how important it is for kids to learn to swim – no matter what their age. Just recently, a local teen drowned because he didn’t know how to swim. It is never too late to learn to swim, the earlier the better.
Amanda Beard is an Olympic swimmer and mom who can’t stress enough the importance of teaching children as early as possible to swim.[exceptional-citing quoted=”amanda-beard1″ template=”elegant” date=”” ]Introduce your kids to water early…it’s not becoming an Olympic swimmer or even being on a swim team. It is simply for water safety and it’s a life saving skill.[/exceptional-citing]
Amanda’s #1 tip for water safety – Introduce your children to water early.
Water + Aqua Sphere Goggles = FUN!
A great way to build confidence and have fun in the water is by adding awesome swim goggles. All goggles are not created equally. We were able to test out Aqua Sphere goggles to facilitate this review.
My son and his friend Caleb love the water – they are like fish and both on our local swim team. They have been through many swim goggles but both claim Aqua Sphere goggles are the best. They can see clearly under the water and further. They couldn’t believe how far they could see with their Aqua Sphere Kayenne Jr youth swim goggles.
Kids don’t like to get their eyes wet. If your child is new to the water, buying a good pair of goggles will make all the difference! Whether they are swimming under water or getting splashed by my son below – they will enjoy all the benefits of these goggles. The goggles are anti-fog and scratch-resistant making them built for active kids like mine!
My daughter is a fish too! Both my kids learned to swim at Leisure Time in Stow, Ohio. In one Summer, my daughter went from being too scared to jump into the 3 feet with Mommy catching her to going down the slide in the 12 feet! I agree with Amanda Beard and my friend, get your kids in swim lessons as early as possible. It is life changing! Before, I was terrified of my kids even walking near the deep end, now I’m confident with them swimming in the deep end and so are they!
I can’t say enough about the swim lessons at Leisure Time – lessons are included and they have an awesome special right now for next year for about 1/2 off with the rest of August free – ask me if you are interested!
My daughter loves her Vista Jr goggles from Aqua Sphere. It makes going down the slide so much more fun too! She never complains about water getting into the goggles like other brands. It comes with a 100% Softeril skirt that makes it leak resistant while still comfortable. Plus, my daughter doesn’t complain about needing to adjust and readjust like she has with other goggles. We simply adjust once and it is done. Adjusting is a breeze too.Plus, she can see everything crystal clear. They love checking out how the pool goes from 5 feet to 10 feet underwater now! Aqua Sphere goggles offer 180 degree panoramic vision because of their design, so kids can see everything and it is a safety feature. I also like that they come with a sturdy case to keep them protective while going to and from the pool.
When my swim instructor friend saw my kids wearing their new Aqua Sphere goggles, she said they were the best goggles available -she should know! Her son has had a pair for 3 years! I’m so happy to have been introduced to this brand and so are my kids.
