Pc Pools Announces ‘Easy Four’ Early Childhood Swimming Checklist March 5, 2009 08:25 PM

St. Paul, MN - Pc Pools, one of America’s leading direct marketers of above ground pools and pool supplies for residential and commercial pool owners announces tips for parents interested in getting young children swimming. Following the ‘Easy Four’ approach helps parents establish positive swimming techniques for their children, and helps ensure safe swimming for years to come.
  1. Take lessons from certified and experienced instructors. Many parents believe it is their job to teach their kids how to swim. Unfortunately, this can cause children to pick up bad habits that can be safety hazards as they get older. Certified instructors provide insight into technique, that create positive lifelong habits associated with increased safety.
  2. Get you child started early. The sooner a child starts lessons, the more comfortable he or she is likely to be. Many parents introduce swimming for their child near the age they begin to walk, but want to be there every step of the way. An above ground pool is one way to ensure the safety of a young child, with depths much less in comparison to most in ground pools. It allows a child to gradually learn how to swim without the risk of a deep end. Early swimming leads to increased performance, comfort in water and safety as the child gets older.
  3. Practice regularly and year round. Practice breeds consistency and strong safety habits, so the more swim time the better. One great way for parents to increase their child’s time swimming is pool ownership. Not only does it increase the value of your home, it provides years of family fun at a minimal price.
  4. Research an investment in your child’s ability to swim properly and safely. Although pool ownership is not for everyone, it is a sure fire way to properly give children constant instruction regarding technique. Above ground pool ownership is surprisingly inexpensive, with minimal upkeep. The investment into a child’s safety is well worth the initial up front cost of an above ground pool. Strong technique breeds swimming safety and awareness, which they will achieve with increased time in the pool.
Marketing Director Ted Robinson had this to say, "Here at Pc Pools, we continually promote swimming safety to our clients. The best possible way to promote swimming safety is proper teaching and practice at a young age. Much like learning a foreign language, beginning to swim at a young age gives children an extra leg up. Along with practice, pool ownership is a great way to give a child the opportunity to learn on a constant basis, while benefiting from increased exercise. Many feel that above ground pools provide a strong opportunity to improve young swimmers confidence, while not breaking the bank in order to do so. Several of our above ground pools are priced under a $1,000, less than many family’s yearly health club memberships."
