What if my child isn't a confident swimmer?
Flippa Ball is a great sport to develop their confidence and ability in the water, no matter what their ability is they should be encouraged to play!There is no swimming ability necessary as the pool is shallow and the players can touch the bottom. In the main pool there is a shallow end and a deep end, depending on the height of the child they would most likely be able to stand at both ends (definitely be able to stand at the shallow end).
