Fear of Swimming

Robert Ludlow,   Doolittle Jr. Elementary School
Physical Activity Participation

This year, I had the 5th grade began swimming as a unit. Many of the students were afraid for reasons including body image and that they had never being exposed to water before. The class was so amazing and excited about the lessons they were able to coax all their classmates in the pool. The positive reinforcement they gave each other was something that I had never seen in the gym.

How did you accomplish your goals?

Having a support system is the most important aspect in accomplishing my goals. When I was younger it was my grandparents and my parents who were there to pick me up when I fell down and told me it was all right to go on. As I grow older, it is my wife and family and friends that are my support system and personal counselors whom I go to when I need some advice.
