Below are a few benefits associated with having mobile swim lessons that you may not be aware of.
You can have extended lessons that last a few hours
One huge benefit of mobile lessons that not many people know about is that you can book the teacher for several hours (if they are free for this length of time). You can, for example, have a lesson that lasts for three hours if you want. This is in contrast to the lessons provided by teachers who work at public pools, who often need to limit their lessons to an hour or less, due to the fact that the pool also needs to be used by, for example, those having water aerobics or aqua cycling classes as well as by the general public.
Being able to have extended swimming lessons a few times a week could enable you to become a strong swimmer far more quickly than if, for example, you were to have a one-hour lesson, once a week in a public pool, as you would spend more time doing supervised practice, with your teacher continually critiquing and fine-tuning your movements. This could be particularly beneficial if you need to become a decent swimmer quite quickly because, for example, you're due to go on a snorkelling holiday in a couple of months or would like to join a local swimming club.
You'll have the opportunity to make the lessons far more fun
The other benefit that you might not be aware of is that if you have mobile lessons (or arrange for your kids to have them), you have the freedom to make them a lot more fun than they would be if they were held in a public pool. This is because when a teacher delivers swimming lessons to a group in a public pool, they need to not only ensure that everyone receives an equal amount of training during the lesson but also that the activities done during the lesson don't disturb the other pool users who are not partaking; this does not leave much time for fun.
Conversely, if for example, your kids are taught by a mobile swimming teacher in your family's pool, you and the teacher can ensure the children learn whilst also having a great time. For instance, if you have a pet dog who likes swimming, your children could chase your pet pooch around the pool whilst practising whichever swimming stroke they're working on during that lesson.
Likewise, if your children love doing gymnastics on dry land, their teacher could have them practise doing underwater handstands and somersaults. Aside from making their lessons more fun, these activities will help them to get used to holding their breath and having their head fully submerged in the water. It will also teach them how to avoid getting disorientated when they're turning underwater.
