Here is a video of my son William. We joined the YMCA the month he turned 3(January) and I started to teach him how to swim. By March 17th he had passed their swim test and could swim in the deep end of the pool. Here is a short clip of him diving down to get his toy torpedo.

Now he is 4 and can easily dive down to 12 feet, but I don't let him go any further. Of course more videos to come :)

Sweet! Make a buddy for sure! Few more years he will be diving a CCR and telling you about his trips to depths you never imagined!

You find him some fins that fit and he will be unstoppable.

Hopefully Tuesday we will have a swim-shoe/fin combo that works for him. Here is a video of him diving to 9 feet. This is about a month after the last video.

I had to watch both of the videos again...I am totally impressed with his comfort in the water, that's for sure! He's a natural diver to say the least.

Good luck with him. My 3 kids all dive, problem is the older 2 are very good competitive swimmers and when we dive they laugh at me for being so slow and using so much air. I still have my 13yo who also competes but she isn't as into competition as her brothers.
