Michigan’s Mermaid Swim School Makes Waves

May 13, 2015 0 Comments

Many women have admitted to me that much of their time in the pool as a child was spent pretending to be a mermaid. This trend seems to span across generations because my niece is the exact same way. I wouldn’t be surprised if my daughter suddenly starts flipping her imaginary fins in a couple of years either.
Which is why it is with great pleasure that I announce something awesome happening in Ann Arbor, Michigan: Mermaid Swim School.

If you are wondering what Mermaid Swim School entails, here is an overview of the curriculum:
“The World of Swimming website explains that the Mermaid School swim classes combine swimming, gymnastics and fitness, focusing on: dolphin kicks; controlling body movement and breathing; swimming under water (on your stomach and back); free vertical dives; backward and forward somersaults; mermaid surfacing; and swimming underwater with music.”

According to the photos, it appears that the students wear a fin accessory. This would make the experience a lot more life-like and fun for everyone.
It seems to look pretty realistic too! I vote we expand Mermaid Swim School across the country so that everyone can have access to this fun idea.
 

UNDERWATER AUDIO

They can listen to all their favorite songs while swimming around the pool in the hot summer sun! It’s the perfect gift.

Carol May is an inspiration. A cancer survivor turned competitive senior swimmer, she used hardship as an excuse to do great things. We love the way Carol lives her life

You know that one person who somehow manages to be a part of everything? On all the teams. Getting literally everything done. You wonder if they even sleep because they are so busy. Yeah. That's Andrea (@tri_hippster), and we love her!

For a man who lives in a desert, Chris Smith lives just about the most aquatic lifestyle we can imagine. When a knee injury meant Chris would have to endure surgery and months of “knee-hab”, Chris knew he needed to get proactive.
