Why Swim Instructors Recommend Frogglez Goggles

Teaching swimming to the next generation is a privilege and it’s one of the very few jobs that I have had in life that I lose track of time. Hours can fly by and it feels like I’ve only been in the water teaching swimming for minutes… it’s crazy.

It’s fair to say that the best part of the job is helping children to harness skills that they will keep for life, skills that they will work for, skills that are tricky to master first, second, third (or many more) times before they get it right! I’m a huge fav of ‘if you’re doing something, then give it you all, otherwise it’s not worth doing it at all.’

With this said swimmers need to come into swimming lessons and bring the learning attitude necessary to progress. One thing that always affected the swimmers attitude in lessons was goggles… goggles slipping, leaking, mis-fitting, hurting, feeling uncomfortable. I lost count of how many times I said ‘Leave your goggles alone and lets get moving’ or ‘shall we see if another pair work better next week so we can have a better lesson’. Then we found Frogglez and the swimmers commitment to the lessons improved over night. I watched swimmers walk on pool deck and pop their own goggles on, with no slipping or moving around, with no fuss. Swimmers attitude in the lesson and engagement with what I was saying and asking them to do suddenly started to improve, it was great to see. Exploring under the water is such an important part of a swimmers journey and Frogglez helped our swimmers to do that whilst developing core aquatic skills, helping them to control their breathing with confidence that they could rely upon their goggles. As a swimming teacher I see Frogglez as an essential part of the tool kit to help swimmers to secure their swimming skills each week whilst having fun and looking pretty cool in the process too!
