10 Reasons Why Swimmers are the Best Kids!

Swimming teaches our children so many life lessons on a daily basis. They learn time management, perseverance, discipline, goal setting, plus develop character and grit. Through the process of a tough schedule with heavy physical demands, our children expand their accomplishments and possibilities. Someday their swim careers will be over, but they’ll take wonderful memories of best times, fun with teammates, plus all the life skills swimming has given them.

Here are ten reasons why swimmers are the best kids:

ONE

They are too tired to get into trouble. They’d rather be tucked into bed watching Netflix than going out late at night.

TWO

They have unbelievable appetites and are open to trying new things. In fact, they’ll eat pretty much whatever you put in front of them.

THREE

They are clean. They get a daily rinse in chlorine as well as take long showers.

FOUR

They are good students. They know they won’t have time—or will be too tired to do homework later—so they work ahead and try to get homework done before practice.

FIVE

They’re comfortable around adults. They communicate with coaches, other swim parents and officials regularly.

SIX

They’ve experienced failure and know it’s not the end of the world. They understand that there’s another chance and with hard work, they can do better.

SEVEN

They’re strong and fit. Working out is something their bodies crave and they’re in better shape than most of their classmates.

EIGHT

They are there for their teammates and friends. If someone is upset or has a problem, they’re more than willing to listen and help out. They also have fun with their friends and can make hours at a meet pass by with silliness and laughter.

NINE

They are confident. They put in long hours and hard work to reach their goals. With each improvement along the way, they build self-confidence.

TEN

We know their swim friends and their families—and that they are good kids we want our children to hang out with.

Did you know?

FACT: Swimming is the BEST physical exercise as it uses every muscle in the body. Swimming requires a child to “think” about what they are doing and to use real skills to complete their swim. Children who swim year ‘round are more self-disciplined, have the confidence to succeed. From consistent goal setting, learning and achieving, they rate high in self-respect.

FACT: Babies who are introduced to the water environment under 1 year of age, enhance their motor skill development, circulation system and lung capacity. Swimming has been proven to build the immune system and keep kids healthy.
