Your Swim Buddy is a buoyancy backpack that offers children assistance when learning to swim - building confidence in the water. And, its hugging effect also helps relieve anxiety.
Learning to swim at one's own pace is vital to confidence in the water. OSCAR offers new swimmers the comfort to learn through supported buoyancy with a two pad, step-down design.
With over 4 years and thousands of swim students using this aquatic tool, the benefits of buoyancy assisted, gradual learning in the water are undeniable. OSCAR makes in-home swimming lessons easy for parents with our simple step down approach.
Developing strong aquatic motor skills can vary with each learner, OSCAR supports the body as the muscles learn to swim and grow along with confidence. As motor skills increase, you can decrease buoyancy using the two float pad design.
"I couldn’t be more happy and thrilled with our backpack! We have taken it everywhere!! It’s been on many cruises with us - and traveled to Australia to the Caribbean to England - and we still use it for peace of mind in our own pool. My daughter doesn’t need it anymore - but having a swim day - better to be safe! It wraps around the body
"I couldn’t be more happy and thrilled with our backpack! We have taken it everywhere!! It’s been on many cruises with us - and traveled to Australia to the Caribbean to England - and we still use it for peace of mind in our own pool. My daughter doesn’t need it anymore - but having a swim day - better to be safe! It wraps around the body - and then the child has full use of their arms instead of being restricted by the inflatable floaties. This brings the bottom to the surface so they have optimal swimming position. It’s brilliant! I can’t say enough great things about it!
"This was the best product we could have bought for our little one to help her learn to swim properly . She felt safe and secure and it helped build her confidence in the water."
"My kiddo had an amazing time learning to swim at Angel Fish, thanks to the Swim Buddy, he was able to trust himself quicker in the water & helped build the necessary skills that using water wings prevents! Highly recommend! "
"This aid really helped my little swimmer develop confidence and the skills to learn independently. Highly recommend this item ."
"Trialed the OSCAR Swim Trainer with several students with special needs. Easy to use and provided deep pressure, protected feeding tubes, while helping students foster safe swim skills!"
