Laurie is an Advocate for Year-Round Swimming
Laurie is an avid advocate for swimming all-year round. Swimming during Winter involves play based activities in the home pool and at the beach. in addition, other recreation activities become limited. Therefore, children’s ability to learn through exploration is restricted. For this reason, Laurie recommends parents keep up formal lessons. Furthermore, if you have to take a break, do so when children have plenty of opportunities to learn through exploration.
Consistent swimming will always produce fantastic results. A way to ensure that constituency through the cooler months may be to encourage parents to keep swimming through the month of May/June and they can receive a second lesson for free/discounted through July/August. This promotion has many major benefits for both the child and the business.
Through picking up an extra lesson weekly, the child is going to progress at a much faster pace. Parents see the benefits of swimming for frequently and me decide to continue with multiple lessons all year round. This is a business win. It can further progress to have a knock-on effect when the parent who hasn’t been swimming through Winter arrives back at the centre sees that her friend’s child has moved up two levels since the end of summer.
