Did you know that if you are planning on giving your child the winter months “off” (terms 2 & 3), you are limiting their instructed lesson time to only 10 hours a year!
Water dangers do not disappear simply because the weather gets cooler, so it is important to continue with your swimming lessons all year round.
Benefits of year round lessons:
Regular exercise helps increase your child’s fitness and immunity
Time off can result in a decline in water confidence, independence, and loss of skills as the skills we teach are not being reinforced
Swimming has been proved to help assist in brain development of school- aged children, improving concentration, balance, motor skills, and coordination.
