It’s getting to that time of year again. Each morning gradually becomes darker. The hours of sunshine become shorter and each night cooler. Winter is shortly upon us.
It is also around this time of year when children begin to hang up their swimmers, pool toys and swimming abilities until next summer. However, swimming shouldn’t stop just because the hot weather is over. Maintaining your child’s swimming abilities is just as important in winter as it is in summer.
It is amazing how easy it is for children to regress in the skills they learnt from swimming lessons the previous summer.
A way to overcoming this regression is winter swimming lessons. Winter swimming lessons provide a range of physical, mental and social benefits for your child, the six most beneficial include:
1. Progression of skills - when learning something new children need repetition to ensure the skill learnt remains one for life.
2. Sustained exercise – indoor swimming lessons are a great way to exercise during winter as lessons are not subject to the harsh weather conditions as much as other sports.
3. Water confidence – when having a huge break over the winter, children can lose the confidence they built up by being in the water or potentially develop a fear of the water.
4. Maintenance of socialisation – weekly swim lessons can be a great way for a child to meet new friends and sustain friendships year-round.
5. Water safety awareness – consistent exposure to a swimming environment and water safety rules increases a child’s knowledge and retention.
6. Academic development – research has shown a correlation between swimming, educational improvement and attentiveness.
Be a swim stroke ahead this winter. Don’t look like a fish out of water when those warmer days start rolling around. Year-round lessons will ensure your child is more than ready for that first day of summer!
