As an introduction to the water for our younger swimmers and in preparation for the Red Cross Swim Kids program, Buckler Aquatics has our own exclusive ‘badge’ certification called Buckler TAD.
Introductory infant and toddler swimming lessons in North York, Mississauga and Scarborough begin with making sure that the child is completely relaxed and comfortable in the water.
The TAD program provides young swimmers with a sense water orientation, and builds trust between the swimmer and the instructor. Using proven methods and slow, gentle persuasion, instructors introduce the major components of this level which is breath retention and breathing control.
Lessons then move to front floats, holding their breath with their head under water, followed by back floats. To earn their Buckler TAD badge, the swimmer must be able to perform both a front and back float, unassisted across the width of the pool. Receiving the TAD badge is a very rewarding event for young swimmers, signifying their first achievement in the pool.
It’s never too early for your child to learn the basics of swimming. Call and register your baby or toddler for swimming lessons today.
