Swimming and Water Safety
The importance of swimming lessons for water safety can’t be overstated. Everyone and especially children should be able to swim. You should never let a child play in the proximity of a pool or a pond unsupervised.
The Benefits of Swimming
The health benefits of swimming are numerous. It trains the cardiovascular system, is a low-impact exercise and a great whole body workout.
There are also several psychological benefits of swimming. A swim session at the shore relaxes the mind, uplifts the spirit and is also often an occasion for social contacts.
Being able to swim opens up a lot of recreational possibilities that wouldn’t be safe to practice otherwise: surfing, kayaking, boat fishing etc.
