BEING A SWIM PARENT
The most important thing you can do as the parent of a swimmer is to love and support your child, both in and out of the pool. This support is a key factor in fostering enjoyment and learning as well as contributing to the child's individual success in the pool.
KEY TOPICS AND READING FOR PARENTS:
- Understanding Coaches - A critical component to an athlete's healthy swimming experience is a positive relationship between the parent and coach
- Understanding Training - As an parent of a swimmer, you might not always understand why coaches have swimmers train the way they do.
- Articles for Parents - Being a swim parent is a great experience, but can sometime be overwhelming. In addition to all of the resources in the Parents Section of the website, we regularly post new articles about being a swim parent.
