Learn-to-Float Tether & Book

Learn to Float at Home

What would you try if you knew you wouldn't float away?

Learn to Float So You Can Learn to Swim

Everyone can learn when they feel safe. Connect yourself with our Learn-to-Float Tether to a ladder or railing in a back yard, hotel, or community pool. Feel safe, knowing you won’t drift away: you’re securely attached. Knowing you can always reach your mooring, you have the necessary safety to learn. Learn that water holds you up in both the shallow and deep; that you can be comfortable and in control; how to stand up from a float. Master the front and back floats.

The Tether

One strap goes around your waist. Another connects to the ladder or rail. A third extends or shortens your distance from the rail. As you become confident, expand the tether to float further away. Color coded buckles make connections simple.

When you’re ready, lie down with your face in the water and ask yourself, “Do I float?” Feeling safe, you can experience the water holding you up. Knowing you float is a big step toward learning to swim peacefully. Knowing you’re safe even if you don’t float is equally important. Learn this with the tether. U.S. Patent #11,331,554.

The Book

If you’re one of the few who are not held up by the water, you’ll learn how to remain 100% present and calm while sinking! It’s not an emergency! The book explains it.

The book and tether (and water) are all you need to learn to float and swim without an instructor. The teaching in the book is fascinating, fun, painless, and infallible, as it has been since we began in 1983. The book gives you every single step of overcoming fear and learning to swim: to be comfortable in deep water. Floating is a basic skill of learning how the water works. With the tether, you cannot fail. Before floating, you’ll learn to put your face, ears and eyes in the water happily. Skip no steps!

Feel safe all the time

The urgency to learn is understandable. However, you can only guarantee learning if you start at the beginning and skip no steps. Find every single step an adult needs to learn to swim, from fear in shallow water to freedom in deep water. The book reveals essential information you cannot find in other books or swimming courses. “We wrote the book” and this is it. It doesn’t include strokes because strokes are not relevant to overcoming fear. Learning to swim means learning to be safe in deep water at Miracle Swimming. Strokes are for efficiency once you’re safe. 

The video at the left shows our wallbar, used in our classes, custom-fit to the pool. You’ll attach your tether to a railing, ladder, or a hook in the pool.

If you have a backyard pool, you can use our Float Bar below.

With an extra extender, you can play further from the wall, then pull yourself or swim back.
