At Waterworks, we strongly believe swimming is a year-round sport and activity. When children and adults alike swim all year long, they are sure to be safer in and around the water all while remaining physically active.
Sure, swimming is fun during the summer months because it allows you to cool down from the heat. But, who ever said swimming throughout the rest of the year wasn’t fun too?
“Swimming is so much more than a sport, which is why it’s essential children remain water safe year round. Birthday parties, beach days, and vacations are just a few examples that demonstrate how swimming can impact many aspects of our day-to-day activities,” says Stevi - Waterworks, Director of Training. “Swimming is a lifesaving skill that should be part of our lives all throughout the year.”
With shiver-free heated indoor swimming pools, Waterworks Aquatics is an ideal location not only to have fun but to learn and reinforce swimming skills no matter the weather. Most importantly, swimming is a skill everyone should know how to do.
Here are the main reasons to continue swim lessons throughout the year:
As mentioned above, having swimming skills allows children and adults to be safer around the water and reduces the fear that can sometimes be associated with being in the water. Continuing lessons throughout the year creates safer and stronger swimmers that will likely know what to do in case of an emergency.
SWIMMING IS GREAT EXERCISE!
