Teach your child to swim – Freestyle breathing

When firat learning how to breath correctly in the freestyle stroke, I would recommend only breathing to one side, and keep it consistent.

This is why we label each arm

Breathing – the side you breath to

Bubble – the side you attach a bubble to as a reminder 

Later on down the road they can learn bilateral breathing (breathing to both right and left) 

There is no right or wrong side to start with it is simply the side that feels more comfortable or turns better.

This skill will show how to incorporate the breath into beginner freestyle arns (or catch up)

There are 4 easy steps

1. Select bubble arm

2. 6 kicks and breathe

3. Bubble arm, roll, bubble arm

4. On board
