Why Swim At A Young Age?

Swimming is the most important activity a child can learn because it could be a matter of life and death. The #1 cause of death for ages 4 & under is accidental drowning. According to the website:, “drowning is 14 times more likely to be a child’s cause of death than a car accident.”

Any healthy child can be taught to swim and float and to be safe and happy in the water. It is very important that they learn the correct postures and balance in the beginning, and the younger the child, the easier it is to show them good habits before bad habits are introduced.

Swimming at an early age helps brain development and makes your child smarter! As most athletic departments can attest, swimmers not only have healthier bodies, they also have much higher-grade point averages.

Swimming can be a lifetime of fun and enjoyment!
