Swimming is an outstanding activity for people of all ages, it promotes fitness and teaches a child to strive for physical achievement. Many super-stars in other sports started out as swimmers and gained strength and coordination that helped them to excel. Participants may be 1 or 101 years old.
Swimming is an exciting individual and team sport, it offers technical and specialized activity involving extensive skill development. It is also a healthy “lifetime” activity. Swimming is relatively injury free in comparison to other youth sports. It teaches the life lessons of sport and sportsmanship which include learning to deal with winning and losing, as well as working with officials, teammates and coaches.
If you are looking for self-improvement and like to set goals, need to improve your child’s self-esteem and mental attitude then this sport is for you! Let’s not forget that it can prevent drowning.
