Helping Jacob with his swimming

This morning Jacob was insistent that we go earn his Mile Swim.  Jacob got tired quick and had to resort to backstroke after 200 yards.  Then he started straying from a straight line and got in other swimmers way who were sharing the lane so I called off his mile attempt so we could focus on technique.  We took this video at the end.  I don't mean to be overly critical, but here are some common mistakes that young kids make that are still learning.

Thing is.  I really need to have someone video me so I can SEE what things I'm doing wrong, cause I bet I have a ton too.  Video feedback is awesome!

I ended up swimming 1200 yards with him during this morning's lesson.
