Summer is in full swing, and boy, is it hot out there. Fortunately, no amount of summer is going to deter kids from enjoying the pool 🏊‍♀️ ! Not only does it feel good, but there are many health benefits to swimming. With school 🏫 right around the corner, maintaining a balanced and healthy lifestyle is vitally important. Here are our top 5 reasons to swim through the school year.

1. Teaches Safety & Awareness

The first thing everyone learns in the water is to respect the water. We are taught to be aware and conscious of what is going on around us in the pool. Of course, this is also valid outside of the pool. As children 👶 learn to be aware, that will carry over into their everyday life. This will benefit them in school as much as it does in the pool. Keep swimming all year, and you will see how it helps all areas of your life.

2. All-Around Body Improvement

Swimming is a total body workout 🏋️‍♀️ . It helps build muscles and increases endurance and stamina. Then there are also the cardiovascular and pulmonary benefits. Swimming is genuinely excellent for your children aside from the apparent benefits to all-around body improvement in the pool. The benefit of school life is also tremendous. Children do better in school when they are overall healthy 💪 .

3. Improves Sleep & Energy

Generally speaking, most children do not like to sleep. Whatever the reason may be, a lot of parents struggle with this area. We think there is a simple option available to you: swimming! The combination of mental effort and total body involvement is sure to drain any child of their energy. This leads to better sleep and even more energy on the other end. This will also be a great boon to your children in school. They will be able to engage in school when they are well-rested 💤 and full of energy.

4. Reduces Stress & Anxiety

As we have already said, there are many benefits to swimming. All of those points have individual advantages. However, together they work in conjunction to make us happier. They reduce the stress and anxiety we might have. When your children take swimming lessons, they set themselves up for success in more ways than one. They are busy feeding their bodies health that will benefit them both in the pool and out of it.

5. Strengthens Academics

The cumulative effect of taking swimming 🏊‍♀️ lessons all year round is an overall improvement to one’s health. Aside from the swimming benefits, there are many educational benefits. Students will see improved memory retention, improved motor skills, and their ability to concentrate will go up. How great is it to do something as fun as swimming and have these great benefits!

Swimming all year round is an excellent way for your children to physically and mentally benefit and have fun while they are doing it! What they learn in the pool easily translates into a classroom setting, school will start in a couple of weeks. Our doors are always open, and we would love to be a part of children’s swimming journey.
