4 Reasons Why Leaning To Swim

Why Learning To Swim Is The Top Priority For Your Child After Lockdowns 1024 684 Marketing

It has been such a tough year for all of us and children have missed out so much. There are countless activities children can get back to; such as dance, football, chess, karate, computing, basketball and violin. But we strongly believe swimming should take priority over other extra-curricular activities for every child. But why? Read on to find out our reasons.

  1. Swimming can save lives

It sounds a bit dramatic, but it’s true. You can’t say the same with ballet or hockey (no disrespect to ballerinas and hockey players!). Drowning is still one of the most common causes of accidental death worldwide. Swimming is a vital life skill that everyone should acquire – the skill you can’t learn by reading a book or watching YouTube.

  1. Swimming helps to build a stronger body

With swimming, you use most of your muscle groups, so it is perfect for toning muscles, building core strengths, and stamina.  It also helps to expand lung capacity which is beneficial for everyone but especially for asthma sufferers.  These are reasons why many children who swim regularly tend to be good at other sports as well.

  1. Swimming is a mood booster

One in 4 people in UK experience a mental health problem each year and it is reported that the proportion of children with mental issues is 50 % higher than before the pandemic.  Swimming produces endorphins, the hormones that make you feel happy and increase the positivity. The breathing patterns and rhythmic movements created with swimming can be meditative. We have seen time after time anxious or fidgety children leave swimming lessons calmer and more relaxed.

  1. Swimming can make your child smarter

Studies from Griffith University shows that young children who regularly swim are above average when it comes to cognitive skills, problem solving in mathematics and languages. Swimming has also shown to have a significant impact in improving memory function and thinking skills.

Swimming is one of the best and most valuable activities out there for your children, and with this skill it would open doors to other opportunities later in their lives.  It is a true worthwhile investment for your children.

We offer swimming lessons to children from age 2 years and above with up to two children per class to maximise learning potential. Lessons, taught by our highly experienced coaches, are engaging, confidence building and results-based.  All our venues have COVID measures in place.

If you want your child to get back into swimming, email contact@sportsgeneration.co.uk or call us on 0208 940 9431 to find out more.
