Learn To Swim

Lesson Trends for 2020

Smaller groups. Swim teachers doing private lessons while on deck. Parents and guardians working in the water with their own children with the teacher in a remote position.

Some instructors, such as Robert A. Strauss of Miami, Florida's Swim Gym, have turned to internet lesson plans to better instruct the adults in how to teach the kids. A worry is a spike in deaths due at home pools due to distracted parents, more time at home and a lack of swim lessons.
