Why Swimming For Your Child?
Learning to swim for infants, kids, and adults in Roseville, CA is a life skill that we at Steve Wallen Swim School firmly believe everyone should develop. Through our experience, we find that learning to swim from an early age will start a love affair with swimming for your kids. The sooner they start, the better! Becoming familiar with water safety as a child will help ensure water confidence, a strong swimming style, and more overall enjoyment in the water.
Whether splashing around in the bath, at the pool or playing in a lake, water is great fun for kids. But it’s also a place where safety must come first. The sad fact is that drowning is the second most common cause of injury-related death among children between 1 and 4 years old, behind vehicle accidents. And it’s the second leading cause of death among children overall. *Learning to swim can significantly reduce the risk of drowning. The fact is, water is all around us – in rivers, lakes, drainage ditches, even large puddles. Equip your child with this life skill and you’ll greatly improve their chances of survival in an unplanned water encounter.
When kids first enter the pool and start lessons, they are taught about the rules and the consequences of breaking them. They are also shown how to follow instructions as they learn how to kick, paddle, and breathe out underwater.
This kind of constructive discipline from an early age encourages self-discipline and concentration – skills that grow stronger with practice and age. These are the same skills that children (and adults!) need to have mastered throughout life.
As your child progresses with their swimming, they will also build confidence as they learn about the rewards of learning and practicing skills. This simple connection is one of the foundations of building their sense of self-esteem.
Health and Fitness
Swimming is an excellent activity for overall health and wellbeing. Not only is it a low-impact sport, meaning that joints are not put under stress from impact, it also provides a full-body workout. Almost all major muscle groups are utilized in swimming (particularly if all swimming strokes are mastered). This means your child’s whole body is working to pull itself through the water as they swim.
Swimming allows a child’s body to move in ways it cannot move on land. For this reason, it is a particularly good activity for those with disabilities, low muscle tone, or rehabilitation needs. Swimming helps improve the muscular and cardiovascular systems. It also promotes better coordination and the development of fine motor skills.
While we always try to be flexible and accommodate our families’ needs, Steve Wallen Swim School has found it necessary to enact the following guidelines to ensure a safe, successful environment for our students and our school.
