Volker Baars: Freddy the duck presentation-board-set

  • Do you give swimming lessons?
  • Do you want the children to learn swimming in a faster and easier way?
  • Do you want to simplify your job tremendously?

    Children learn easiest by imitation.
    On these presentation boards Freddy the duck shows different exercises. You can print and laminate these pictures and set them up at the pool edge.
    Step by step you may insert one image after the other. First one picture, then number 1 and 2, then 1,2 and 3 and so on. With this method children can further develop their abilities, beginning from the easiest exercises (starting at no.1) up to the more difficult ones (ending at no.10). Kids benefit from it, because they love to imitate the exercises. The pictures show exactly what you have to do in order to learn swimming.

  • Therefore, you as the coach have to explain less.
  • The noise level will be reduced considerably.
  • The exercising rate will be increased significantly.

    Freddy the duck is fun!

    With the picture method everything happens directly at the edge of the pool which makes it one of the easiest ways to learn swimming. However, ALWAYS be very attentive, since children may let go of the edge of the pool out of carelessness. At the pool edge kids barely show fear. That way, with the help of Freddy the duck, they can practise the basics for swimming in the most easy and fast way.

  • No.1 - Blowing duck

    No.2 - Paddeling duck

    No.3 - Diving duck

    No.4 - Bicycling duck

    No.5 - Frog-legged duck

    No.6 - Spinner duck

    No.7 - Nonsense duck

    No.8 - Swimming duck 1

    No.9 - Swimming duck 2

    No.1: blowing duck
    Freddy the duck is blowing into the water making a really loud noise. Thereby the lips are pressed together so that no water can get into the mouth and so that you can build up enough pressure to not get water up your nose.

    No.2: paddeling duck
    Freddy the duck is splashing its feet loudly onto the water surface. The shoulders have to be under water.

    No.3: diving duck
    Before the duck can dive it takes a very deap breath. Not till then Freddy can dive. Whoever wants to hold ones nose can do so. At first the eyes can stay shut. After an appropriate familiarization it will work with the eyes open as well.

    No.4: bicycling duck
    Right when the one hand is pushing down on the water strongly, the other hand can move further down on the pool edge. This is only possible, when the shoulders are really under water and the palm of the hand is pushing down very far.

    No.5: frog-legged duck
    Freddy the duck is moving its toes vertically upwards along the side of the pool and is then opening its legs to trace a big circle until the legs are closed and Freddy starts all over again.

    No.6: spinner-duck
    The palm of the hand is pushing the water away doing a big semi circle motion, so that Freddy the duck can perform half a turn at the edge of the pool. The position of the hand is diagonal, just like the wing of a plane to the wind. The arms have to stay elongated so that you can clearly feel the pressure of the palms. The fingers should be spread widely just like the wings of a bat. That allows a child to use the highest possible pressure and strain.

    No.7: nonsense duck
    Before the nonsense duck can float, it is necessary to take a very deap breath, hold your breath and push your hair completely under water. To make the nonsense duck work, make sure, that every child can open their eyes under water.

    No.8: swimming duck under water with holding on
    Take a deap breath, push your head completely under water and start doing wide, strong swimming motions. It only works when hair and shoulders are under water. Are the eyes really open? Frog legs are requested.

    No.9: swimming duck under water without holding on to the pool edge
    This exercise only works for children who manage No.8 very well and move forward quickly. Please only introduce No.9 when No.8 works perfectly! It is necessary to remind the kids that they have tob e able to keep their eyes open under water so that they can see the side of the pool and not move too far away from it in case they need air during their first couple of tries.

    Not till the kids can swim about 5 meters quickly under water, which means a good, fast forward movement by arms and legs is given, is swimming above the water possible. The picture on which the duck is swimming above water is not available in the learn-to-swim picture set for a reason. The children should not experience failure. They will automatically swim above water once these 10 steps have really become second nature. You can see all the practise steps in the educational film "learn-to-swim for children".
