How Does Swimming Help My Child?

Swimming exercise involves cardiovascular activity, which enhances both heart and lung condition.

Swimming also increases strength, endurance, flexibility and balance.

Children who engage in regular swimming activity might avoid health issues associated with childhood obesity, including diabetes.

By teaching your children swimming skills, you equip them with water skills that can increase water safety.

Spending time in the water can also be positive for children’s mental health. Swimming may improve mood and decrease anxiety.

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.
