  •     The manual in in good condition with no marking on the inside. I am taking the training and it is good to have my own manuals.
  •     I bought this book from eHow.com and using the combined efforts of the book, and eHow, I managed to teach my three girls all to swim on their own. I really recommend it.
  •     We were hoping for some good techniques and guidelines for teaching our kids in the pool during the summer. This was a lot more philosophy and less practical application.
  •     I was not happy with this book. I had hoped to get a book to help me teach my children to swim. This book was mainly philosophy about the YMCA with VERY little information on steps to teach a child to swim. It was not helpful at all.
  •     I'm actually teaching swim classes at the Y right now, and this book has been a great reference tool. I was pretty much thrown into the class as a floater the first couple of weeks and instructed to teach. The good thing about this book is that it breaks down the fundamentals and actually provides the Y's specific methods. I also purchased the Parent/Child Y instruction book which has been even more helpful.
  •     I was teaching a child how to swim and bought this book as a guide for what to teach. I did not find this book helpful though, as most of the games and activities are geared for a YMCA swim course with many students. The book teaches the reader how to be an instructor for the YMCA. The material in the last two chapters, which explained swim strokes, was the only information that I found somewhat useful.
