Ms. Cathy firmly believes that teaching your child to swim is just as important as covering an electrical outlet. One of the leading causes of accidental death in children ages 2-10 is drowning.  You can be the most caring parents and still have your child fall in some type of body of water and drown.  Sadly, no parent is exempt from this sort of terrible accident. This is why Ms. Cathy teaches them to swim to the side and climb out.

Why play roulette and attend swim lessons that usually take a year or two of lessons before your child can even save themselves if they accidentally fall in?  Your child can learn to swim in as few as 8 lessons and is then able to save themselves by swimming to the side of the pool and getting out unassisted if they happen to fall in the pool.

The Approach:  Ms. Cathy's swim lesson approach is a face in prone position, 3 second gliding submersion with adding mobility. This gives children the ability to get to the side of the pool and climb out.  Parents should note that all children 11 months and older will be extremely anxious until they bond with the instructor and get comfortable with the prone-glide position. This usually takes 3-4 lessons and by then they are swimming to the side and enjoying themselves. The initial discomfort is well worth it as this is one of the fastest, most effective swim programs for infants and children. Most children will learn to swim in 8 lessons or fewer.  Some children may need more than one session due to motor skill development.  Some of these skills can be achieved at home before your swim session begins.  Call Ms. Cathy at 512.263.7813 for skill training information.

Program Details                       

All private swim classes  are in a 2-week segment with 8 lessons at Ms. Cathy's privately owned pool (Monday through Thursday). All parents must stay with their child and will be given daily exercises to help enhance their child’s progress. The price for the 2-week swim lessons is $400 per child.  THIS IS A PRIVATE POOL SWIM CLASS.  THESE LESSONS ARE NOT PUBLIC SWIMMING LESSONS.  To view pictures of private swim classes with Ms. Cathy click here.

These are the best swim classes available to save your child from accidental drowning.

Ms. Cathy's Swim Trainers will provide parents with the tools to learn the perfect position and leg kick without taking years to learn it.  It's like training wheels for swimming.  If your child forgets the correct position at any time they can put them on and their body position and leg kick is corrected.  The BEST thing is that the swim trainer helps train body position and muscle memory.  These trainers are $75 and are available for purchase through Ms. Cathy.

Ms. Cathy's mission is to give FREE one day parent water safety seminars around the United States to teach the simple techniques and give parents the tools to train their children at home (no pool needed) so that accidental drownings don't happen to their children.

If you choose to take your child to swimming lessons elsewhere, the classes will be more focused on introducing your child to the pool and helping them be comfortable in a water environment until your child is 3 years old.  It takes an average of two summers before your child can swim unassisted to the side of the pool and get out if they should fall in.  Money spent is usually over $1,100 before children can swim well enough to swim to the sign and get out unassisted if they fall in.
