4 Reasons Why You Must Teach Your Child to Swim

teach your child to swim

When you teach your child to swim, you are giving them the confidence and water safety knowledge they need to blossom socially and physically.

Summer time is our favorite season. Why? Swimming, of course! We specialize in creating amazing pools and spas to satisfy all of your relaxing and exciting water entertainment needs. It doesn’t matter if you are taking a dip in your backyard pool, the neighborhood swimming pool or the wide open ocean – learning to swim is an essential part of a healthy life. Learning to swim is especially important for children, who are at a greatest risk of accidentally drowning. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), drowning remains the fifth leading cause of unintentional death in America. Children between 1 and 4 years old reportedly have the highest drowning rates. Sunrise Premiere Pool Builders is here with more important information about teaching your child to swim.

Swimming Helps Development in Babies

Starting with the youngest swimmers of all, babies stand to benefit greatly from being immersed in water. Their brains are rapidly developing, and exposing their bodies to the range of temperatures and textures associated with water increases their sensory development.

Water Safety First

As we mentioned, accidental drowning is very serious. If you teach your child to swim at an early age, they will be more likely to save themselves and less likely to fall victim to unintentional drowning. Additionally, as you teach your child to swim they will form a respect for the water and an understanding of its dangers. They will think twice before running into the ocean without you or jumping off the diving board without supervision.

Water Exercise is Healthy

Are you looking for a fun way to increase your child’s physical activity? Swimming is your answer! Water exercise holds several health benefits including improved circulation, flexibility and cardiovascular function.  

Swimming Increases Confidence

If your child can’t swim and begins to spend their summers around children who can, they may suffer from fear, anxiety or a lack of confidence. If you teach them how to swim early, they won’t feel embarrassed or scared about the thought of enjoying their summers with friends in a swimming pool. Help them get ahead!
