Here at Barron Swim School we believe that year-round swimming is very important. There are multiple reasons why specifically year-round swimming is so good for your kids. Here are our favorite reasons why:
1. Physical Health
Swimming increases flexibility, improves aerobic endurance, tones muscles reducing risk of injury and joint deterioration. It is also helpful particularly to those who struggle with Asthma. The warm, moist air is unlikely to trigger their asthma; as well it will increase their lung volume.
2. Mental Health
Swimming will reduce anxiety and depression by increasing endorphins. At Barron Swim School, we have designed every detail to fit the perfect environment for our students. Everything from the warm air/water (90 degrees), welcoming customer service, and cheerful teachers. Our lighting is bright and décor is colorful. It is a nourishing break for you and your child!
3. Brain Development
It will improve development intellectually and emotionally. According to the studies of at the German Sports College- Cologne, kids who swim year-round progressed better academically—especially problem-solving skills. As well, kids have showed more self-discipline and self-esteem.
4. Retention Skills
Like many things, practice makes perfect! The more frequently you swim the easier it is to retain skills and become more advanced within those skills. We highly recommend staying in year-round lessons to retain and build on life-saving skills.
5. Stronger Social Skills
Swimming helps kids to learn how to take turns, listen, share, and cooperate in our group lesson setting. It was proven that kids who had taken lessons from 2 months to 4 years old could adapt to new social situations more easily and gain confidence in social settings.
6. Reduced Risk of Drowning
Swim lessons reduce the risk of drowning by 88% for kids of the ages 1-4 years old. We have found that our results are successful when children swim year around and the consistency makes an immense difference.
