Swimming is life altering

A Griffith University study examined 7,000 children who took swimming lessons in the USA, Australia and New Zealand. Turns out, those swim class kids had a substantial competitive edge across all developmental areas:

  • Intellectually, children were 6 months ahead of their peers in counting and mathematics reasoning.

  • Physically, children were 7 months ahead in motor development.

  • Socially, children were 15 months ahead in sociological and emotional development.

New 2019 Guidelines Classes  In its newest water safety guidelines, the AAP recommend children start swimming lessons around age 1 to help decrease risks of drowning. (See AAP Report)  (Washington Post Article on New Standards)

Parent-Child and Toddler Swim Classes Recent studies suggest that water survival skills training and swim lessons can help reduce drowning risk for children between ages 1-4. Classes that include both parents and their children also are a good way to introduce good water safety habits and start building swim readiness skills. If your child seems ready, it's a good idea to start lessons now.

Swim Lesson by the Time They're 4....A Must for Most Families! By their 4th birthday, most children are ready for swim lessons. At this age, they usually can learn basic water survival skills such as floating, treading water and getting to an exit point. By age 5 or 6, most children in swim lessons can master the front crawl. If your child hasn't already started in a learn-to-swim program, now is the time!

 

Statistics on Why Children Must Learn to Swim

 Parents and Swim Instructors CAN DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS!

 

Approximately 10 people drown every day in the United States. Drowning is the 3rd leading cause of unintentional injury deaths worldwide, accounting for 7% of all injury-related deaths.(Source: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)) 

 

More than one in five fatal drowning victims are children younger than 14. For every child who dies from drowning, another five receive emergency department care for nonfatal submersion injuries.(Source: CDC)

Drowning is also a silent killer—most young children who drowned in pools were last seen in the home, had been out of sight less than five minutes, and were in the care of one or both parents at the time. (Source: Present P. Child Drowning study)

NOT ONE MORE DROWNING VIDEO: CRISIS IN THE WATER  (Why Every Child Needs to Learn Water Safety)

Participation in formal swimming lessons can reduce the risk of drowning by 88 percent among children aged one to four years. (Source: Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine 2009)

If a parent does not know how to swim, there is only a 13 percent chance that a child in that household will learn how to swim. (Source: National research study by the USA Swimming Foundation and the University of Memphis)

Seventy percent of African-American and sixty percent of Hispanic/Latino children cannot swim. (Source: National research study by the USA Swimming Foundation and the University of Memphis)
