How to be an Awesome Swim Parent 7 of 9


7. Let them unplug outside of the pool.


Swimming isn’t and shouldn’t be the only thing in anybody’s life.

Once they leave the aquatic center in the morning or at night-time they should be able to leave it behind. Constantly having to rehash practice or meets in the car, at home, and over the dinner table is mentally exhausting.

Have some perspective about where swimming truly ranks in the scheme of things. Being a great swimmer is cool, but being a young person with enough perspective to realize that its just a race or just one practice is even better.
