The Benefits of Swimming at Any Age

Crystal Garland, Director of Aquatics

No matter the age, it’s essential and never too early to make sure you and your kids are comfortable and water safe in the pool. Drowning is the second leading cause of unintentional injury-related deaths for children, ages 1–14, according to the National Safe Kids Campaign. April is officially Adult Learn-to-Swim Month.

One of the biggest benefits of learning how to swim at any age is that swimming is FUN. Everyone loves getting in the water and enjoying themselves, but swimming also provides benefits that can keep children and adults healthy and happy at the same time:

  • Swimming keeps our heart and lungs healthy, improves strength and flexibility, increases stamina and even improves balance and posture.
  • Swimming provides challenges and rewards accomplishments, which helps children and adults to become self-confident and believe in their abilities.
  • Swimming allows plenty of opportunities to make friends and grow in confidence.

Club Greenwood has amazing instructors that have learned the art of teaching all swimmers how to be safe in the water, from blowing bubbles to floating, to using proper technique and being efficient in the water. For private swim lessons, we work with your schedule to find time to practice and achieve the goals of our swimmers. We also offer group swim lessons for children and adults.
