Speedo Splash Session

One word that would get my kids excited and ready within minutes is “swimming”

We were invited to the Speedo Splash Session event that was held at The Palace Downtown.

“Oh Mama, I feel like we are inside one of the castles in my fairytale books.”

Stepping outside the pool area was just as beautiful with a view of the tall buildings and Dubai water fountain.

They promised a fun morning of swimming led by qualified instructors from the Speedo Swim Squad. I could not help but instantly say YES! because I knew my water babies will have fun.

Daddy C and I are firm believers that kids should know how to swim. It is one life skill that they will have in them always.

Kuya V had swimming lessons in his kindergarten years but this was no longer available when he transferred school so we made sure that he continue learning with him in our building pool and with a certified instructor. Chloe started swim lessons when she began Foundation Stage 1  and still continue to do so now since it is part of their sports curriculum in school.

Speedo team welcomed with new swimsuits and a chat of what will happen that morning. Yes, Mama got a new swimwear too from the recently launched Speedo Sculpture collection. It has been designed to shape, support and flatter a woman’s body – I definitely felt comfortable and beautiful. Speedo Sculpture is available on all Stadium and leading sports stores in the Middle East.

Each session was grouped by age – baby ducklings, ducklings and teaching levels. Chloe was under the ducklings and although it was a short session, she was very shy at first but wanted to do more when all the sessions were done. Lauren one of the certified Speedo Instructor incorporated play and fun in all the instructions given to them.

It was difficult to get the kids out of the pool, I could not even bribe them with the yummy breakfast spread prepared for us by The Palace Downtown team. They only agreed to finally leave when I promised them we would schedule another pool day.

It is fun, a good exercise, a sport where one can excel individually or as part of a team  but the most important is that swimming can one day save a life.

Speedo Swim Squads conducts swimming classes for all ages across 7 venues in Dubai, visit their facebook and website for more details.
