November - Working Through Discomfort
Welcome to our monthly newsletter content, video, and quiz. These monthly newsletters are designed to continue your education and add strategies to your toolbox for continued success. They can be shared with your entire aquatic team and provide tips for typical swimmers in private and group lessons.
This month we will be looking at “Transitions, Discomfort and Pushing Yourself to Regain Control of the Lesson”. In the live session, the environment itself was not the same for the swimmer. As he entered the pool, it was loud because the waterpark area was in use. Immediately the noise caused him discomfort. This particular lesson was neither his usual routine nor was it the usual time he came to the pool. It is important for the instructor to be aware of all types of obstacles and/or changes to the swimmers routines and environment that may impact the lesson itself.
