Chicken Pox

Swim Doctor Posted on Mon, November 18, 2013 22:24:39

Chickenpox is an infectious disease caused by the varicella-zoster virus and is most commonly seen in children under 10 years old.

Chickenpox is highly contagious and infects up to 90% of people who come into contact with the virus. It is caught through direct person to person contact, airborne droplet infection i.e. via coughing and sneezing or through contact with infected articles such as clothing and bedding and towels.

The incubation period (this is the time from becoming infected to when symptoms first appear) is from 10 to 21 days.

As far as we are concerned; we are happy for children to come swimming once they have scabbed over for a clear two days.

Shakespeare Hospice 10,000m swim

Teacher Chat Posted on Mon, November 11, 2013 11:46:36

Well done to my ten year old Edward who helped me complete the six mile relay for Shakespeare Hospice at The Stratford Leisure and Visitor Centre.

An amazing swim challenge that tests your strategy and team work. The event encourages teams of ten to work together to complete the race and raise money. I have to confess when people asked what I did for a living, I had to say sales…

My thoughts on rubber rings…

Teacher Chat Posted on Fri, September 06, 2013 10:09:23

It amazes me how many people turn up at a lesson with a rubber ring. I ask you, how on earth is your child going to learn how to swim?

I was recently on holiday in France, and I suppose you can just about get away with using a ring on holiday, however, I feel if you can avoid them, please do.

I watched several parents happily pop their youngster in the ring and bob them around. Fine, but then they left them! On one occasion a sibling swam up held onto the back of it and tipped them over, I’ve never seen parents fall off their deckchairs so quick. If the rubber ring tips forward, the child will struggle to get back up.

This pool was a busy fun pool. The water was not particularly warm (or clean for that matter) so the poor baby was put in the ring and froze and they couldn’t understand why it was screaming. Also they take an age to get the child in to it.

My advice would be to hold your child, make them feel secure, wish them around in the water to make it fun, let them see you enjoying it.
