Swimming can be taught at any age but can be learned much faster and easier when taught at a younger age. As the brain of young children is still developing, they grasp more knowledge faster than when they get older. From overcoming the fear of water to becoming a strong swimmer, SpeediSwim takes children through a series of lessons to build up skills and confidence, helping them understand safety and discover their aquatic potential. It is important to remember that every child learns at their own individual pace. Learning to swim is not a race in itself
Swimming is one of the most popular extra-curricular activities that children enjoy. Going to swimming lessons is a great way for children to learn water safety and physical exercise, which provides a workout for the whole body. Swimming is fun, and learning to swim early will reduce a child's fear of water, when they overcome these fears, kids benefit from developing confidence in their swimming ability and will feel more comfortable and enjoy themselves in the water, making pools and beaches a less stressful environment.
Speediswim has an elaborate Learn To Swim program that will make sure they have all the required skills they need to succeed to the next level and eventually help in preparing the young swimmers for the competitive world of swimming. Children thrive on learning new skills. But learning to swim is not a race, your child can learn at their own pace.
