To be a Miracle Swimming Instructor, a teacher must be not only experienced, gentle and kind; she or he must also recognize that confidence comes before skills.
A student must be comfortable to learn to swim.
Comfort is the goal of every single moment of our 5 core courses; never is it a physical skill.
Learning to swim is becoming comfortable in water over one’s head. It is not learning strokes.
A licensed Miracle Swimming Instructor can solve virtually any learning problem of an afraid student.
The vast amount of information missing from previous trainings.
For over one hundred years, swimming lessons in the U.S. have been about learning strokes. Since the late 1980s, they have emphasized strokes virtually to the exclusion of safety.
The secret to successful swimming lessons is not tips on swimming technique or mechanics. It’s understanding learning.
When you understand the system of The 5 Circles, you will supercharge your power as a teacher.
In Person: Start where you are today and skip no steps. This course is all the dry-land sessions and shallow water skills you need, including essential skills not taught elsewhere. Begin to learn ease in the deep by relying on yourself for your safety, rather than the bottom or the side. The photo at the left portrays learning during Covid. Each student will learn a portion of his/her confidence at our new Float Bars, as pictured. You are connected securely to the bar so you don’t need a spotter. These allow social distancing, yet allow you to learn the early skills comfortably.
