Not sure what to expect at your first swim practice? Or confused by all the different swim terminology that you’re hearing around the pool deck?
At some point in time, I stood exactly where you’re standing now. Or perhaps in this case, treading water and trying not to drown! 😉
Swim practices can be confusing to new swimmers. The good news? As a new swimmer, you’re not alone!
While my days as a new swimmer are several years behind me, I see new swimmers struggle almost every day. Trying to find their place on the team or figure out the sport as a whole.
