Nature2 Sanitation System
Nature is a sanitizing system that uses patented mineral-bed technology to provide crystal clear water and improved water quality. Working with the pool filtration system, Nature uses elemental minerals that combine with a small amount of chlorine to inhibit bacteria growth and eliminate contaminants. Minerals make the water noticeably softer, and less chlorine means a lower potential for red-eye, dry skin or foul odors. With Nature, your swim experience is clean, fresh, and gently soothing.
Our DolFUN Method
DolFUN's multi-faceted disciplines include this basic approach, placing an emphasis on the learner's natural relationship with the water and uses the qualities of that relationship as one's primary safety device.
A child learns to focus on mastering the water's natural forces to influence brain development and aquatic comfort. From these postures children (and beginning adults mastering water fear) can first learn to manage aquatic forces for safety and then propulsion. Incorporated into our method is the Swimplicity® approach which is an environmentally accurate Learn to Swim program curriculum created by Edie Flood, Milt Nelms, and Bill Boomer-United States Olympics coach.
