I know how much my children love to swin, but it took a while for Mademoiselle to gain her confidence in the water. But now she’s a competent swimmer.
This week, Little Mister moved up *again* in his swimming class to Stage 4 deep water. He’s always been too confident & needed swimming aids to keep up with his ambitions! I’m so pleased they both now have good water confidence and at the age of five my boy is a good swimmer.
However, I also know how difficult it can be to gain that water confidence. For a long time my Mademoiselle would not give up her aids, she just didn’t have the confidence despite having the skills.
The aid that certainly helped most with their swimming – and they love too – is theSWIMFIN Shark Fin. Little Mister wore his throughout our summer pool holiday last year.
Firstly, the SwimFin Shark Fin is fun to wear & that’s important if you’re a child! You strap the fin to your back and look like a shark and chase your sister/brother around the pool. What’s not to like?! Secondly it puts you into a more natural support ready for swimming.

” It’s typically designed for children 2yo and above. Unlike other swimming aids, SwimFin is multi-stroke functional. It leaves the arms completely free to move and so can be used to learn front-crawl, back-stroke, breast-stroke and butterfly.
SwimFin is worn on the back and expertly weighted to provide support when needed. SwimFin has won many international awards and is endorsed by several swimming governing bodies.
SwimFin works for all ages and abilities: from toddlers taking to the water for the first time, all the way through improved learners to advanced swimmers who want to develop stroke technique. Tests have proved that learning to swim with SwimFin can reduce the process by up to a third less time.”
I’ve tried many alternative swimming aids including squeezing a toddler’s arm into tight, uncomfortable armbands, but the Shark Fin was the most successful.
So I’m more than excited to be giving away a SWIM FIM Shark Fin & a set of matching funky floaties to get your little one water confident this summer.
