Learning to swim and learning strokes are two different things. Learning to swim --to rely on yourself for your safety in deep water-- comes first. If you have fear in shallow or deep water, learning strokes is not your next step. First things first! Learning to swim lays the foundation for learning strokes the next time you try.

This system will become the way swimming is taught to adults, no doubt.

Knowing how to swim means knowing how to rely on yourself for your safety rather than on the bottom or the side of the pool. It means feeling safe and being safe in water, shallow and deep. To learn to swim, you need to build trust in yourself in the water. You need to know you won't inhale water, that the water holds you up, and that you can remain in control with ease. Do you believe you'd, "lose it" in deep water? Have you been told you should float horizontally? To blow bubbles before you were comfortable putting your face in water? Learn how your body and the water work together. The key to confidence in deep water is understanding how the water works; not strokes. Strokes should only be learned after you're confident. That may be your first learning.
