Why Swim Year-Round?

Payoff on Investment is BIG. So many of our families choose to swim year round. We think they are super smart to make this investment in their children’s life skills.

Just a few of the benefits include:

  1. Amazing Long Term Benefits – Scientific studies of infant swimming in Germany have shown that early stimulation develops the child in three key areas: physically, mentally and emotionally. As compared with a control group, which did not take year-round lessons, the children who swam consistently from infancy were significantly stronger and more coordinated. The muscles developed in a process similar to physical therapy enables the children to excel at all physical activities and was not limited to swimming. Mentally, the children also scored higher for intelligence and problem solving, which carried over into excellence and alertness in school. And, emotionally, children who swam year-round were found to be more self-disciplined and to have motivation and confidence to succeed. They rated high in self-respect from consistent goal setting, learning and achievement.
  2. What is the best way to protect my child from drowning? Swimming year round is the best way to protect your child from the very real danger of the water. Year round swimmers retain a healthy respect for water and build skills way beyond those of seasonal swimmers.
  3. Won’t the children be tried after a day in school? School involves sitting still and mental activity. Young bodies need a fun outlet to vent their energy. Being cooped up in school all winter can lead to lethargy and couch potato syndrome. Swimming invigorates like no other exercise. It works all the muscles in the body evenly on both sides and is both aerobic and strength building. Children who are accustomed to healthy exercise grow into adults who are healthy.
  4. What about sickness in cold weather? Children who swim year round are less likely to become ill than those with a less active lifestyle. Swimming does not cause inner ear infections and  outer ear infections can easily be prevented by thoroughly drying the ears.
  5. What about other sports? In addition to all the unique benefits already mentioned, swimming is just about the only sport we can enjoy well into our senior years. A lifelong pleasure, swimming is also important for the many water related activities such as diving, fishing and boating. And once again, remembering the safety of your children, swimming is the ONLY sport likely to save lives someday.

Swim year round from infant on up and reap the benefits.Investing now will pay off for a lifetime.
