    U swim is the best site. It is a step by step guide to teaching your child. I recommend it even to my clients. The more they get the better.

    We do that. I'm surprised you say you haven't seen it elsewhere. As a swimming pool manager and teacher getting to the side and back floating are clearly the two most important skills to learn!!!!!! If a child can do either or both those things they have such a fighting chance.

    I do back floating and entries and exits and under water orientation in every single class from bubs upwards. Even the bigger kids need to have a good and relaxed back float incase they are stuck in open water or get cramps and need to call for help etc.
