Why Our Kids Must Learn To Swim

  • Swimming can prevent drowning. African-American children drown at a rate nearly three times higher than their Caucasian peers. (Source: CDC)
  • Swimming is relatively injury free in comparison to other youth sports.
  • Swimming 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.
  • Swimming 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.
  • Swimming motivates participants to strive for self improvement and teaches goal orientation.
  • Swimming cultivates a positive mental attitude and high self-esteem.
