What is the SwimForce™ for Babies Way?

Swim for Life with Karina Renaud inc was created out of an innate passion and desire to help save lives by teaching young children how to swim. Too many children drown each year and Swim for Life wants to help change that by getting the proven information out there. We want all families everywhere, to know that learning how to swim is a life skill. Knowledge is the key, and this online parent program is here to help parents take the lead in fostering emerging life long swimming habits.

We teach you the fundamentals of our exciting approach, you take this knowledge and teach your own babies, in the comfort of your own home.

To begin, we focus an effective water entry with baby. How to introduce baby to water in a way that will encourage them to stay calm and secure, knowing that their most trusted loved ones are at their side. Here you will learn how to hold baby, how to help them position their bodies for effective support and how to position yourself comfortably while supporting baby. Through this step of our program you will learn the importance of the back float position and why and how this is our program’s signature move and how it becomes an essential component in a strong swimmers foundational repertoire. Once you and baby are comfortable in the water, our program modules walk you through the SwimForce™ for babies circuit, a routine that you and baby will practice over and over at each bath or instruction time. These skills can even be transferred to the local pool’s free swim, your backyard pool or that family vacation you have been planning. The skills you learn here with baby, are transferable to many water situations. The more you practice, the more comfortable everyone will be in the water. As you and baby get comfortable in the water, you will learn to focus on breathing techniques and how to teach babies to find a comfortable and effective position to practice these effective breathing techniques.

We believe that it is never too early (or too late) to start using water to teach, calm and bond with your baby.

Repetition, routine and perseverance are essential components to our unique program and each step has been carefully created and sequenced with proven results, rave reviews and long waitlists. We are so excited to share it with you in this exclusive online format.

"My son started swimming lessons with Karina at 5 months old. With her he developed a love for water! Not only does he adore swimming in a pool but he also gets excited for bathtime! With Karina’s techniques he has become confident and relaxed when in the water all while having fun! As a parent, I know he is building a strong foundation that could be life saving, and that these learned skills he is learning week over week will last a lifetime. There is no price tag as a parent that I could ever put on this!"

"This is an excellent course — definitely worth checking out!"

- Joanna Broccolini, Mother of 2 children from Montreal

"I particularly like the parent baby workshops because they focused on teaching my baby how to be safe in the water first then eventually how to swim. It was a unique approach, and using the skills/techniques that I learned in the workshops made me able to continue the education with my child at home, at the lake or at public pools. Karina is a patient, encouraging and carrying person and her workshops teach real life safety skills every child needs."

- Livia Di Medio, Mother of 2 children from Vancouver

Aren't babies too young to learn how to swim?
Babies are programmed to learn new things from the minute they arrive in our arms. Through consistent scheduling, repetition and routine, we believe babies, even very young, can learn new skills that will help them in the water. While baby wont be swimming meets by the end of this program, you will see baby learning breath control techniques and other important emergent water skills that will foster a solid foundation for their future swimming endeavours.
Is it dangerous to let my baby get water in their face?
The SwimForce™ method offers a sequencing to of activities that will give you the tools you need, to teach baby the skills they need to handle getting water in their face. We recommend all caregivers be extremely vigilant at all times.
