The warm, sunny days of summer have finally arrived, and Splash students have been staying cool and having fun with our Luau theme this month.

Also, hot weather means opportunities for extra practice for our students, and it shows-- there have been alot of ribbons awarded to our little swim stars in the past few weeks.  We are so proud of you!

Even Otters Need Swim Lessons!

We were recently sent a video of an Otter teaching her pup how to swim at the Columbus Zoo.  

It is interesting that otters are not born with the ability to swim, but need to learn just like us.  And while the pups are not always eager for their first swim class, they succeed with encouragement and practice-- just like our students at Splash!

Enjoy!

Article on Baby Swimming in the LA Times

Posted by Liz Claytor on Fri, Jun 25, 2010 @ 05:14 PM

One of our parents sent us a link to a great article that was recently published in the LA Times about the benefits of starting swimming lessons early. We thought it would be of interest, especially to our Waterbaby parents and graduates. Enjoy!
