How to help kids overcome a fear of water?

Award certificates can be used for children who are trying to overcome a fear of water and are learning to swim. Use them to encourage and motivate kids and to boost their confidence. Don’t forget to compliment the child for his efforts. Encouraging words from parents and the coach can help the child overcome any fear and learn to swim. Often, once they start learning and realize how much fun it can be and how much positive reinforcement they receive, they change their attitude and start enjoying swimming. Initially, you might need to encourage and award kids for just getting into the water but once they feel like their effort has been recognized then they might be more open to learning and gain water confidence.
