Children’ Swim friends,
We are heading towards the third edition of the WABC Brasil – World Aquatic Babies and Children Brazilian Congress and, therefore, consolidating this space for the development, update and exchange of information for professionals who are specialists in this segment. As these gatherings take place we keep going deeper into our discussions and bringing important subjects up under new focuses.
At this edition the subject is Kids swim into the new children’s context. The invited speakers come from various different professional areas, have various different experiences and work in order to offer a wide variety of subjects to the participants, aiming to better understand children and to teach our audience how to work with children in the water.
We will have Lulu Cisneros, from Mexico, as our international guest who will talk about children’s swim in North America by providing a view on what happens in countries such as Mexico, the United States and Canada.
Besides the congress itself we will offer three pre-congress courses to the participants so that they can get further information on important subjects which will be presented by well known professionals such as Luzimar Teixeira, Jocian Bueno and Lulu Cisneros. Don’t miss the opportunity to be present at the biggest Brazilian children’s swim event. See you there!

“I would like to congratulate all the team that has been involved in this event
for their courage, professionalism and mainly for their hearts. I believe that
to most of the people present, or at least to those who have been in this area
for a longer period, it has certainly been a historical event. We know how
important an event like this is and how wonderful it is to see so many people
involved in making children’s swim grow in Brazil.”
“I have so much to thank you for: the excellent congress you have provided us,
the event’s organization team, which is always present. I will surely improve
the quality of my classes. I’ve found out many activities and suggestions that I
can put into practice in my classes and, mainly, offer to my babies amazing
“We have actually taken part of a beautiful story. I believe this is the
beginning of a great event that will last forever.
I also believe we have all been renewed. There was a great deal of information and much incentive that led to such renewal.
All the effort put into organizing this event was really worth it.
I hope the results obtained from this event are spread throughout Brazil and reach the children all over the country.”
Teacher Guilherme Henrique Lopes
“Until November the 7th I felt like a ‘stranger in the nest’ when I talked about
the work I carry out with children’s swim. Today I feel renewed for knowing that
so many people think of swimming like I do and, therefore, we belong to the same
‘tribe’. The event was a great success
and certainly much better than we could have imagined.”

The importance of Music for Babies and Children Swim Classes
Music is an essential and necessary function of Men which appeared through the interdependence and need to express and communicate, influencing men’s behavior and physiological functions. We know that sound stimulation conditions the reactions learned by the subject throughout his/her life and that such reactions begin in the intrauterine phase. Therefore, which effects can the sound stimulation (songs, music, etc.) cause to swim lessons aimed to babies and children? How can we offer adequate musical stimulation that can optimize the psychomotor work carried out in swim lessons to babies and children? How can we use songs or instrumental music? Which contributions does the rhythmic coordination offer to enhance the basic movements of swim lesson to babies and children?

How to Make the Transition to Competition Training Learning
The transition from learning to sport training must always consider the child’s physical and emotional readiness. Knowing and understanding the competitive demands of the modality is important for the teacher to know the needs of the student and to be able to adequately plan the class / training session. Such knowledge is also important to guide the parents. Spotting, identifying and selecting the sport talent are important elements in this competitive initiation phase. Nevertheless, it is vital to analyze that spotting is only part of the long term plan process.
