SWSS Swimmer of the Month for January
Congratulations to Fallon from El Dorado Hills, California, our Steve Wallen Swim School swimmer of the month for January! Fallon recently turned 2 years old, and has been swimming with us since she was 7 months old. She first started taking swim classes with her older sister Ava in a semi-private class together that helped create a safe and comfortable environment in order for her to take to the water well and progress quickly.
Now that she has been swimming for almost 1.5 years, she is doing very well and continues to swim 2 days/week in a private swim class. She can push off all by herself in a prone swimming position as well as float on her back independently. These are two very important water safety skills that help students learn to respect the water and be safe. Fallon is currently working on putting these two skills together by swimming in a prone position on her tummy with her face in the water, and rolling on her back to breathe. Once a student develops these skills together they are able to swim across the pool by swimming on their tummy, rolling on their back to breathe, and rolling back into the water on their tummy and continuing to swim. They are taught to repeat these skills continuously until they reach their destination across the pool. Another important live saving skill that Fallon is learning is to JUMP, TURN, and SWIM which is a life saving skill where a student jumps in the water and turns around to swim back to the wall for safety.
Most importantly, Fallon loves her swim classes 2 day/week with Ms. Keely and continues to impress us with her progress at each and every class. Way to go, Fallon! Another champion swimmer at SWSS!
