4 Life Lessons Your Children Learn From Swimming Lessons – SwimWay
We all know that swimming lessons provide many physical and mental benefits, but there is also much more to swimming. Here I list just 4 of the skills that your children can learn from their SwimWay swimming lessons that will help them achieve their great potential in any walk of life!
1) Hard Work
The best way to see results is through hard work. Like any sport, swimming requires dedication and commitment. During our private lessons our coaches can instruct and encourage, but the pupil must show up each week and work hard to improve.
Your child will see steady improvement in their swimming, and when receiving a SwimWay certificate of achievement they will see the results of their hard work, and be able to apply this to other parts of life.
Everyone may want to jump into a pool and swim just like Rebecca Adlington or Ian Thorpe but learning to swim takes patience. From getting accustom to the water to learning and perfecting the correct stroke techniques, all these things will require patience that will eventually lead to great results.
Patience can be a valuable lesson to learn. Many tuff times in life can be aided with careful dedication and a great deal of patience.
3) Keeping An Eye On The Details
Correct technique can be difficult to achieve, and although we may want to swim faster and longer, sometimes concentrating on the small details of or your technique can have huge effects. Correct form in the water can prevent drag and make your swimming more efficient, allowing you to swim faster and further.
If the swimmer can concentrate on these small details not only will their swimming improve but they will learn how important these details are for overall success.
The very best thing about swimming is that it is fun. We all know that exercise releases endorphins that make us feel good, and that the success we get from hard work boosts our self-esteem. But if we are really being honest splashing around in in a warm pool is simply just a lot fun.
Sport, work, life, no matter what it is, swimming lessons teach you that hard work and fun can go hand in hand and that sometimes the best things are both enjoyable and rewarding!
