Swimming for me is one I personally feel is vital, vital to empower and vital to save a life. I spent a lot of my time in the water as a child, I had my own canoe and even took part in the ocean youth club as a teen and sailed a yacht to Holland!
Fast forward a few years *cough cough* Beth has always loved water and I was lucky to have some amazing pools right on our doorstep when she was a tot … Although this is not the same for Joshua, the local pool times can be erratic and fitting in swimming has been far harder to do.
After our holidays last year I decided that enrolling him on some swimming lesson would be the way forward but he has to be a little bit older yet, so in order to maintain his water love we are taking him as much as we can to the swimming pool …. in fact as you read this we will be gathering the swimming kits and will be packing for trip to Splash Landings this weekend!
A short while ago I was approached about working as an ambassador for Konfidence and since water safety and being motivated for children to learn this super skill is high on the list for my children I jumped at the chance!
So Who Are Konfidence:
- “Based in Cornwall, Konfidence is a family run business with three generations involved (4 if you count the little ones testing and modelling our products).
- Today, the company is Europe’s largest designer and manufacturer of baby swimming products, buoyancy aids and UVPF sun protection clothing and wetsuits for children up to 14 years.
- The multi-award winning products, which includes the Original Konfidence Jacket and the Babywarma baby wetsuit, are now sold in 22 countries worldwide, including 14 countries in Europe, North America, South Africa, Malaysia, China and Hong Kong.
- Founded in 1998, this year marks Konfidence’s 15th anniversary”
So The Oliver’s Madhouse is now a swimologist! … or more to the point Joshua is!
For those wondering why the name? …
There is a brilliant and beautiful fable that says
“You may study all the “-ologies” of the world, but if you do not learn swimology, all your studies are useless.”
That in my book sums up my feelings on the matter too!
Over the coming months I will be
road swim testing their products with Joshua and we cant wait to share our underwater journey with you.
But for those that cant wait to start on their own swimming journey Konfidence are offering one of my luck readers a Original Konfidence Swim Jacket (£24.99) and a beautiful Floatsuit (£24.99) to one lucky reader in a choice of colours and sizes!
So what are you waiting for! … good luck!
