3 Reasons to Get Your Child Swimming Lessons Now

Swimming is a fantastic sport for all ages, we love teaching it and providing children with a vital life skill. If you are having any doubts as to whether or not you should enrol with us, here are 3 reasons to start swimming lessons now…

1. Keeping Children Safe

Drowning is the second-leading cause of unintentional injury-related death for children ages 1 to 11. Furthermore, research has shown that participation in formal swimming lessons can reduce the risk of drowning among children aged 1 to 4 years.

SwimWay is the swimming school that does not use floatation aids in our swimming program. We believe the first step for a child learning to swim is to teach them to use their own buoyancy in the water, this way they can feel comfortable and confident as they develop their technique within the SwimWay methodology.

2. Keeping Children Healthy

Swimming is well known to be an excellent activity at any age. Few other exercises can produce a full-body workout with cardiovascular benefits while producing very little strain on the body. Being in the water is also known to have mental health benefits and aids in relieving stress.

It has been shown that children who participate in sports show greater attention and get better results in schools. Taking weekly swimming lessons also help to set a child a weekly exercise routine and starts them off with a healthy lifestyle.

3. Having Fun in the Pool Year Round

The UK gets an estimated 60 days of sunshine per year on average. However, you can escape the bad weather by swimming inside! Our private indoor pools are all heated and kept to a minimum of 30˚C. This is especially necessary when teaching babies or toddlers to swim.

We have swimming lessons throughout the year in all of our indoor London pools. Our terms follow the state school calendar (though you should always double-check your school dates with our calendar). During half terms and other holidays, we also teach intensive holiday crash courses.

The majority of our pools are inside private houses. This not only adds to the privacy and exclusivity of our lessons but enables SwimWay to ensure all our facilities have the highest water quality.
