More than just a summer pastime, swim lessons are a fun and easy way to encourage your child’s active lifestyle year-round.
A parent’s commitment to swimming education can help protect a child in the water for life. Love to Swim School, the American Swimming Coaches Association and United States Swim School Association all agree that the ability to swim 300 yards nonstop dramatically lowers the possibility of ever drowning. How far can your child swim without stopping?
While enjoying the water, students also learn important life skills through their participation in the sport, including self-discipline, work ethic, commitment, goal setting and how to overcome challenges. Studies show that swimmers as a group do better in school and work than non-swimmers.
Health and Fitness
Swimming is both conditioning-intensive and skill-intensive. It builds endurance and muscle strength, soothes the mind, regulates breathing and stimulates circulation – all without stress on the joints. Plus, swimming has a calorie burning potential of 350-420 calories per hour! Joining a swimming program is a healthy and wholesome activity available year-round for your children to enhance their overall fitness.
Swimmers of all ages rank “fun” as the number one reason they swim. Through swimming, children have fun learning, competing, training and being with friends. If it isn’t fun, your child may not want to keep it up, so the most important question to ask after a lesson is, “Did you have fun today?”
The end of the summer shouldn’t mean the end of your child’s swimming education. We have two indoor pools heated to a comfortable 90 degrees with the surrounding air temperature kept at 90 degrees, so students can stay warm while learning. Keep your child active and learning year-round.
