Tips for 10 year old boy....or advice for mom and dad?
I have never been in the world of swimming before. My 10 year old son decided that he wanted to join swim team last year. I kind of panicked a bit at my lack of knowledge. But his coaches were amazing and he had a great year. So I guess my questions for you are what are some tips for him or me? Also what advice would you give your 10 year old self. Or what advice would you give your parents back then? Thanks!
My only advice is to make sure your son is having fun. He's only 10 years old. He's not earning any scholarships just yet and he'll never get there if he doesn't have fun in the sport.
Don't panic about not knowing anything about swimming. Neither of my parents were swimmers. They didn't know anything about swimming, and honestly to this day they still don't know much about it other than it makes me happy.
Thanks for the response. My son LOVED watching you and the rest of team USA at the Olympics. Great to have role models for him to look up to!!
