Why Your Child Should Learn To Swim

1. Swimming lessons help prevent drowning

A study found that swimming lessons may help to reduce the risk of drowning by as much as 88%. Certain swim programmes are designed to teach infants self-rescue skills such as floating on their back until help comes.

2. Infants tend to be comfortable with water versus older children

As toddlers’ brains are developing, they absorb information quickly and will have an easier time adapting to water. Familiarizing infants with water reduces the chance that they will fear it when they are older, or be affected by negative attitudes towards swimming. 

3. Swimming encourages earlier physical development

It is possible for an infant to learn to swim before he/she can walk. As a low-impact sport, this means that toddlers can be active at an early age and develop coordination skills earlier. A study from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology found that babies who learn to swim have better abilities to balance and grasp objects than their non-swimming peers. This may be because swimming allows infants to use their muscles more than they do on land.  While toddlers do not have the motor skills to properly perform strokes, swimming lessons will teach them to move and float independently in the water.

4. Swimming allows children to develop their social skills

During swimming lessons, babies are frequently interacting with others. They learn to follow directions from their instructor, play and share with other babies, and listen to their parents. According to the German Sports College Cologne, young swimmers are less shy, more independent, and more comfortable in social situations than non-swimmers.

5. Swimming helps develop psychological benefits

Having been in the womb for nine months, most infants are born with a love of water and find it stimulating to their senses. In addition, infants who swim have greater self-discipline, as they learn to respect the rules of the water and those around them. Infants also gain more self-confidence with every technique they learn, further encouraging them to learn. This builds a good foundation for skills that go well beyond swimming.

Swimming is often said to be one of the most important life skills and the earlier a child learns to swim, the earlier they can reap the benefits.
