Your support has a massive impact on your child's ability to enjoy and learn. Swimming is a multi faceted
sport and is challenging on all levels of development. These factors apply from the early stages, Learn to Swim and all the way up to competitive swimming. Let your child know that swimming is the goal, irrespective of winning. Your positive approach to his/her swimming will enhance the learning and performance curve and in turn, this will have a great knock on effect in terms of self esteem and life skills.
Remember, in the Swimmer-Parent-Coach team all must be a winner. If one leg fails, we all do.
Never try to coach your child. You need to be your child's best fan. Leave the coaching to the coach. Keep your involvement at support and club related matters.
Be a Positive Force in your child's swimming.
