Learning how to swim properly is a skill every child should have the opportunity to learn. From a young age, babies in swimming lessons can start to develop skills such as coordination and social awareness which stays with them from years. Children love to learn the wonderful and rewarding sport because it is uniquely challenging and stimulating.
Aside from being a vital safety skill, swimming is one of the few sports in the world which can be enjoyed regardless of age. We have witnessed children in Singapore perform swimming lessons activities and skills to a higher standard than their moms and dads. You can learn more about swimming lessons from Swimhub – Singapore’s best swimming school.
As you get older, swimming is one of the best sports for your mental health. In fact, therapists often ‘prescribe’ swimming as a form of stress relief. It is also a widely know fact that, as swimming is a weight bearing sport, it is excellent for a full body workout and for the joints. Imagine learning this skill as a child and being able to reap the benefits of it for life.
Children who become strong, competent swimmers often choose to go on to try different aquatic based sports such as diving, water polo, synchronised swimming and triathlon, to name a few.
Every child in Singapore should have the opportunity to attend swimming lessons.
