Jumping for Jump Start Clinic Joy

As your child’s school schedule is winding down, you might find yourself with a little more time than usual. To cut down on, “Mom, I’m bored,” consider doing something productive with that time. Over the summer, Goldfish offers what we like to call Jump Start Clinics, which begin in June.

Think of Jump Start Clinics as pushing fast forward on your child’s swimming progress. Instead of waiting a week in between lessons, when you enroll in a Jump Start Clinic, you’ll say yes to a week full of swim skills, technique and water safety. That’s right—swim lessons five days in a row! Five days to “roll over,” to show off “big arms!,” to “dip” and to “dive for rings.”

As summer (we hope) starts to heat up, it’s also a great precautionary measure. You and your kids will inevitably take a trip to the beach, lake, ocean or pool at some point during the summer. The best path to take to ensure that your kids are safe is to make water safety a priority; kids need to be aware, comfortable and skilled in the water. Jump Start Clinics expedite that process and keep swimming safety top-of-mind. For a refresher on some of our other swimming safety best practices, check out our blog post Safe Summer Swimming.

If you’re worried that five days of swim lessons in a row will break the bank, don’t; they’re affordable and well worth the additional safety that comes with the clinics. If you have more than one child, sibling discounts are also available.

Just think: it might even be a good excuse to gather your girlfriends or buddies and take some down time at the pool while your kids gain the skills they need to make swimming a safe and fun activity for the whole family.
