If you are adventuring into the “waters” of taking this study – Fear not! If you are a parent or guardian who is looking for a way to help a child navigate through this study – Fear not!
- This is study is not designed to inundate you with so much information that you choke, in the water and/or on the Word
- This is not a do-it-yourself swim class: Most of the activities involved in the lessons can and should be practiced away from the pool
- This is not an intensive Bible study: Each lesson’s theme is relatively simple and self-contained, so that it can be easily digested
What this study is designed to do is give you an opportunity to establish, realign and/or reprogram your thought processes regarding a relationship with waterways. Water calls to water: if you can learn to relax and feel at home in your own skin, the 70% liquidity of our bodies can be at home in the 100% fluidity of water. Spirit calls to spirit: if you can learn to relax and feel at home within your own spirit, you can take this opportunity to establish, realign and/or reprogram your thought processes regarding a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. This program is designed to equip you with the tools necessary to approach a swim class with the confidence, grace and basic knowledge that says “I Can Swim”.
So, again I say, “Welcome.” Or, better still…… “Welcome Home”.
Concept: Head-to-Toe Swim Prerequisite Instruction
Audience to whom these lessons are directed:
- Those who wish to learn to swim, including those whose arrested development precluded the learning of swimming skills as an option in the past
- Those who are learning, or have learned to swim, who may or may not have abundant access to swimming facilities, but wish to maximize their pool-time by incorporating and improving their skills, including breathing and optimal body positioning
- Those swim instructors, as well as those who wish to teach swimming and water safety, who wish to both understand the behavior of some swim students and how best to reach the shared goal of producing confident swimmers from non-swimmers
- Anyone who desires to make swimming and water safety an integral part of his/her life for exercise, employment and just plain old fun
