Congratulations to Levi, Zalman, Mendel, and Zeesy from Folsom, California, our Steve Wallen Swim School swimmers of the month for December! Steve Wallen Swim School provides Folsom Swimming Lessons and El Dorado Hills Swimming Lessons at affordable prices, stop by today for your free swimming lesson trial class.

Levi is 8 years old, and has been swimming at Steve Wallen Swim School since he was 4 years old. When he first started swimming classes with us, he was very fearful of the water and lacked the confidence for safe swimming. As he progressed, he quickly overcame his fears of the water by first swimming with assistance and then learning to swim all by himself. Now that he has continued his swimming classes, he has advanced to swimming freestyle with side breathing as well as backstroke. Zalman is 6 years old, and has been swimming with us since he was 4 years old. He had the advantage of watching his older siblings learn to swim, so when it came his time to swim, he was eager to learn.

Now that he has developed water safety and water awareness skills, he has progressed to learning more advanced skills such as freestyle with rollover breaths and kicking on his back for longer lengths. Another great water safety skill he has developed is jumping off the edge of the pool and swimming back to the wall for safety. These skills are very important for safe swimming as well as backyard swimming with friends. Mendel is 10 years old, and has been swimming at Steve Wallen Swim School since he was 7 years old. He got a later start at learning to swim, yet has shown great progress since taking his first swimming lesson with us over three years ago.

Initially, his goals were to learn basic survival swimming skills in order to be safe in the water. Many kids are invited to swim parties, or other swimming play dates with friends at this age, so it is very important to be confident in the water and know safe swimming skills. Mendel is now swimming freestyle with side breathing and backstroke. Zeesy is 9 years old, and has been swimming at Steve Wallen Swim School since she was 6 years old. When she started her swimming classes, she didn’t even like getting her face wet. After only a few classes at Steve Wallen Swim School, she was already comfortable putting her face in as well as laying on her stomach in a prone swimming position. Now that she has advanced on her skills, she is swimming freestyle and rolling over on her back to breathe. She is also very comfortable swimming and kicking on her back.

These four love their weekly swim lessons at Steve Wallen Swim School, and continue to show great progress at each swim lesson. Over time, they have all over come their fears of the water, and continue to build their confidence with each and every class. Most importantly they are learning the life skill of the fun, health sport of swimming, which will lead to lifetime of swimming enjoyment. Way to go, Levi, Zalman, Mendel, and Zeesy! Four more champion swimmers at Steve Wallen Swim School!
