Benefits Of Swimming For Your Children
Swimming has many benefits, but the ones below are particularly beneficial for your children.
Keeps your children healthy
It will provide children with a range of exercise, from a small amount of activity and movement to a full-on cardio workout. The fun of messing around in the water allows children to exercise without even realizing it. It can provide stretching and toning exercises, or a full workout that can strengthen the lungs and the heart.
Opens the doors to other water sports
Swimming opens the door to other sports and activities, including rowing, sailing, water polo and even becoming the next Olympic or Paralympic champion! Swimming provides challenges, from working through the Kellogg’s ASA Awards to perhaps one day swimming the English Channel.
Is the only sport that can save lives. Learning to swim is fun but it also provides health benefits and could save a child’s life. Sadly, drowning is the third most common form of accidental death in children, so learning to swim really is an essential life skill.
At present 1 in 5 children in the UK leave school unable to swim. Several studies have shown that babies, who swim within the first two years of their life, develop a greater sense of their surroundings; they become more creative and observant.
Swimming is a great calorie burner
Swimming burns 3 calories a mile per pound of body weight, which is very important nowadays when children spend most of the time in front of TVs and computers instead of being active.
Beneficial for everyone
The great thing about swimming is that children of any age, size or ability can take part – and it is more accessible to children with disabilities than most other sports.
