    Local swim clubs tend to offer a one size fits all group experience that may work for some but not all. We have tried them and perhaps you have too. A noisy, gymnastic-sized pool, a hundred parents in the stands and about 40 students spread out in the lanes according to their skills. They meet once a week for 30 minutes and hope to remember what they have learned the following week. The child gets a collective 5 minutes of attention per class to actually practice and then they are tested only to learn they need that same class 2 to 3 more times. Sound familiar?

    This summer, after that experience, we decided to sign up for a session of swim lessons offered at the Milltown Borough Pool. My three children were greeted by an instructor and a helper. I thought surely we are early or perhaps running late but no other children ever came. While each child received individual instruction with the instructor, the helper managed a ring toss game for the waiting children. This kept them engaged and entertained while they waited for their turn. They offered 10 classes split up in a 2 week session. They were in the pool every morning practicing and gaining confidence in the water. After 4 lessons, my eldest was promoted to Advanced Beginners where she began mastering back stroke, diving and freestyle swimming. She went from a no swimmer to advanced swimmer in 10 lessons!

    The instructors are so kind, patient and lots of fun. My kids loved them and were sad when classes concluded. They even gave them donuts to congratulate them for finishing the course which is a big deal for kids! Next summer if you have a young swimmer and some free time, bring them to the Milltown Borough Pool for lessons!
