11th September commences Y3’s two week intensive swimming tuition. All participants will need to make sure they have their swimming stuff with them each day.
It is so important for young people learn how to swim it’s is the only sport which can save your child’s life. Drowning is still one of the most common causes of accidental death in children, so being able to swim is an essential life-saving skill. It’s important to remember that children who appear water confident are not always competent swimmers.
Swimming is lots of fun for people of all ages and children especially love getting in the water and enjoying themselves.
But it is not just fun, swimming also provides loads of health benefits which can help to keep your children healthy and happy at the same time:
Another great thing about swimming is that children of any age or ability can take part and it is more accessible for children with additional needs than almost any other sport.
But health, fun, and confidence are not the only reasons why your child should learn to swim. Learning to swim also opens up the door to a range of other activities.
Learning to swim is a skill that once learnt is rarely forgotten and it is open to people of all ages. There are even swimming events for people over 100, and a few master swimmers who are still swimming past this age.
