Swimmer of the Month!
October 2015, Swimmer from Folsom, CA
Congratulations to Kritin from Folsom, California, our Steve Wallen Swim School swimmer of the month for October! Kritin is 4 years old and has been taking swimming lessons at Steve Wallen Swim School for one and a half years. Since starting his swimming lessons at three years old, he has shown tremendous progress as well as gained an incredible amount of confidence while developing a love for swimming. As his confidence has grown so has his swimming ability! He started swimming lessons to develop water safety and water awareness skills such as swimming in a prone position with his face in the water, blowing bubbles, floating on his back, and grabbing the wall in order to be safe around the water. Once he developed these basic life-saving skills in order to learn to swim, he quickly advanced to mastering his strokes and breathing. Kritin now loves to swim an entire lap of the pool, without assistance, while swimming freestyle and rolling over on his back for a breath.
Kritin has mastered his freestyle stroke, and is now working towards swimming an entire lap freestyle with side breathing, as well as learning to add backstroke arms while kicking on his back. Kritin also enjoys working on blowing bubbles as he dives to the bottom of the pool to retrieve rings. You can always expect a huge smile on his face while he is jumping into the pool from the side. Kritin’s early start at Steve Wallen Swim School has led to a love of water and great confidence while swimming. Way to go, Kritin! Another champion swimmer at SWSS!
