The Benefits of Swimming Lessons for Kids in Mississauga
At British Swim School Greater Toronto, our primary goal is to teach Mississauga area kids how to be safe in and around the water, and of course, how to swim. But our lessons come with other wonderful benefits as well, including:
Physical Health – Swimming is an all-over winner when it comes to promoting physical health. It’s a full-body cardiovascular workout that strengthens muscles and improves coordination and flexibility with no impact.
Emotional Health – Being buoyant in the water is relaxing and can improve overall mood. Swimming can also reduce feelings of stress and anxiety as well as help combat depression.
Social Health – At British Swim School Greater Toronto, our swimming lessons for kids in Mississauga give students the opportunity to socialize with their peers and instructors and learn how to take turns and listen to directions.
