1. Develops confidence

Children can often be fearful of water if they are not sensitized to it. Overcoming this fear can be extremely empowering, boosting confidence and self-esteem. This newfound confidence can extend to social situations, which allows your child to interact with peers, developing their social skills and providing another self-esteem boost. Improving self-esteem instills a positive attitude towards a physical activity which assists later in life.

2. Boosts social skills

Swimming, while often thought to be a solo activity, is actually a great social activity. It introduces you and your child to others with similar interests and lifestyles. Children enjoy the interaction with other children where they find common ground, solidifying a valuable social engagement outside of school.

  1. Enhances mental development

Swimming stimulates young children’s senses and is thought to improve brain and emotional development. As babies develop mobility functions and breathing becomes deeper, they are encouraged to make a sound. This improves communication and aids in language and speech development. Swimming also supports a child’s mind/body connection as studies have shown that during exercise a child’s mind is stimulated, promoting further brain development and intelligence

4. Support a stress-free lifestyle

Swimming is a great stress reliever. It clears the mind, provides routine and fosters a balanced lifestyle. Scientifically, swimming is proven to increase endorphins (and other mood-boosting chemicals) in the brain.
