Teach me to swim so we can play together!
Introduction | 2 | 3 | 4
After months of bobbing and splashing and dog-paddling in the water, it finally happens. She's swimming. Really and truly swimming. And you've never been more proud.
It doesn't happen all at once. It's a process. So our Swim Step 3 products work like training wheels for the water – with graduated floatation devices like our Power Swimr Swim Trainers or our Sea Squirts Swim Assist Vests. By helping your child make progress at her own pace, you're setting her up for success. By creating swimming aids that kids really want to use, SwimWays makes learning to swim even more fun.
