Why Continue Swim Lessons After Summer Ends?
- Across the country, outdoor pools often close around Labor Day. However, canals, ponds, rivers, and backyard pools, although they may get cold, do not disappear. The danger of drowning is equally present year-round.
- Learning Water Survival is first and foremost a skill – not just a sport or activity. It is a necessity for life-long safety and is always in-season.
- Stopping the continuation of a learning process of any skill sets a child back at any age, but especially a young child. He or she will regress if lessons end and those skills being learned are more beneficial long-term if the child learn that skill on a consistent basis.
- For the child who has passed the learning stage, swimming year-round will enhance their all-around fitness. It’s a great way to promote activity in children, one which also reinforces their skillset and improves their ability to survive in a variety of water situations.
- Studies suggest that little ones who swim have enhanced cognitive ability, social skills and advanced coordination.
SO, just keep swimming!
