THE MOMENT A STUDENT OVERCOMES FEAR OF DEEP WATER, S/HE KNOWS HOW TO SWIM.
OVERCOMING FEAR AND LEARNING TO SWIM ARE THE SAME THING.

MIRACLE SWIMMING INSTRUCTOR TRAININGS

WHY IS MIRACLE SWIMMING NEEDED?

There are two possibilities regarding whether or not someone is afraid in water: either they are, or they aren’t. They can be successful with traditional (20th century) lessons if they are not afraid. What is success? It’s learning to be comfortable, confident, free and safe in deep water. The traditional system is working for people who are not afraid, and is needed for some of the world’s population including some in the U.S. For the rest of the world, we need an explosion in the number of classes for people who are afraid. With the exception of one or two swim schools that have specialized in teaching fearful adults, such as Miracle Swimming, afraid adults have never been served as a population. For them, a different system from the traditional must be used in order for them to learn. A massive population— 109 million adults in the U.S., alone— needs Miracle Swimming or something like it in order to become safe in deep water (learn to swim). Without both teaching systems, we leave a portion of the world unsafe in water. To make it possible for every person to be reliable for his/her safety in pools, at the beach, in storms, in boats—we need to face the fact as a body of professionals that adults who are afraid in water commonly quit swimming lessons, and instructors don’t really know why. To solve this problem, we must look at it from a new angle: the students’. Miracle Swimming provides that angle, proven consistently (100%) successful for 34 years and still unparalleled.

As three instructors so powerfully put it,

  • “My students are suffering from what I don’t know.” – Sharon Powers, Powers Swimming, West Palm Beach, FL
  • “How do we get Miracle Swimming to the masses? My apologies to the thousands we’ve taught the old way.” – John Thorburn, Jim Montgomery Swim School, Dallas, Texas
  • “I always wondered why some of my students just weren’t getting it. Now I understand: I just wasn’t teaching it!” – MaryAnn Bein, Blue Water Swim School, Piscataway, NJ

WHAT WILL YOUR NEW SKILLS BE AS A MIRACLE SWIMMING INSTRUCTOR?

  • Understand what adult non-swimmers really want to know
  • Create an atmosphere in class that’s most conducive to fun efficient learning, which brings people back for more until they’ve learned everything
  • Be successful with every single student
  • Get your students to relax consistently and form a habit of relaxation in the water
  • Teach adult non-swimmers how to be free and peaceful in deep water
  • Have a grounded, sensible, true answer to every question adults ask about LTS
  • Have a system that cannot fail, that has never once failed in 33 years and over 5000 students, that you can stand behind with utter confidence
  • Be able to motivate your students to practice and look forward to it
  • Have a money-back satisfaction guarantee
  • Convey the nuts and bolts of relaxation and control in water and how to get there: it’s not about telling people to relax! It’s not about physical skills. It is very simple. It can be found by clicking here. If you agree with that page, and you want to help adults learn to swim, you could be a fit to become a Miracle Swimming Instructor.
  • Show students that though they think freestyle or learning to breathe is their next step in LTS, first they actually need to understand how the water works with their bodies and be able to remain in control. THEN, they can learn strokes. You, as an instructor trainee, may undergo a transformation to learn that, yourself!

DEFINING THE PROBLEM: WHAT IS MISSING FROM MOST SWIMMING LESSONS FOR FEARFUL ADULTS TODAY?

1. Instructors and students believe that knowing how to swim means knowing strokes.

2. Instructors and students believe that learning strokes helps adults to overcome their fear of water.

3. Students do not feel heard when they say, “Yes, I can stroke, but I don’t feel I can swim because I’m still afraid in the deep end.”

4. Students don’t feel safe. Fear and panic are not discussed.

5. Students panic in class.

6. Students who quit are not asked why.

7. Students don’t love their lessons.

8. Instructors think that if THEY think a student is safe, the student is safe, even if the student doesn’t feel safe.

9. Students leave class wondering if something is wrong with them.

OUR 21ST CENTURY SYSTEM OF TEACHING HAS USHERED IN A NEW ERA OF TEACHING POWER AND EFFECTIVENESS.

BRING THESE SAFETY ESSENTIALS TO SWIMMING IN YOUR COMMUNITY:

  1. A series of steps of learning to swim that never fails*
  2. Increased participation in all swimming sports
  3. New possibilities for water safety
  4. The steps of healing fear, as opposed to managing fear
  5. A new paradigm of learning applicable to any learning
  6. Empowerment of swim instructors to succeed with all students
  7. Keeping pools open by increasing the number of people who love swimming *and speeding up learning for all students

COULD THOSE BE HELPFUL TO YOU?

“I’ve always felt badly that my adult students just weren’t getting it. Now I know, I was just not teaching it. Just like MasterCard…priceless.”

-Mary Anne Bein, New Jersey swim school owner of Blue Water Swim

” It is completely the opposite of what traditional training represents. If I had only read about this system and not witnessed it several times over, I would be skeptical as to its success. I have always been pushed, and have been taught to do the same thing in order to produce results. No amount of “pushing” can produce the results that your system does in any of the swimmers I have seen through this program.”

-Ian Thorburn, Dallas, TX, Trainee
