Better swim lessons

Have you ever thought to yourself:

“I just wanted to make my swim lesson program better?”

There is an easy way to improve your swim lessons in almost every facet: provide your staff with easy to use effective swim lesson plans.

That might be daunting, but there is help.

What makes a great lesson plan?


The picture above is a little breakdown of the lesson plans. It shows some notes about why we designed it this way. Aside from being pretty, there are some extremely functional reasons for its format.

There is a solid black bar across the top with the level and day of lessons labeled. This is so you can quickly reference each lesson plan by level and difficulty. At a quick glance, you can look at your folder or binder and access a lesson plan for a level 4 or a level 1 with ease. Want a little more complicated level 3? Grab day 3 or day 4.

We use the lesson plans in 45-minute classes, but they were originally designed for 30-minute classes where you may or may not complete everything. Large numbers on the lesson plan show you what the optimal order is for the day’s activities. Lessons get progressively more difficult as you go on; day 1’s are easier than day 4s.

Colored boxes under each activity make it easier to read in the instructions while you’re in the water. You don’t want your instructors in the water distracted and forgetting where they last glanced.  The boxed color also won’t’ destroy your ink supply.

Each activity is dense with concise information required to accomplish the task. Activities include scripts, lyrics, goals, instructions, and progressions within the text below the activity name. These are intended as a teaching tool for beginners to lean on and a guidepost or refresher for veteran staff.

A single one-sheet for each of Swimming Ideas’ four levels. A comprehensive sheet with a sample lesson on the reverse for each level.
