Many believe that swimming lessons should cease over winter due to fears of sickness in young children. Here are the 4 main reasons to continue your child's swimming lessons over winter.
1. Swimming in winter actually works to strengthen the immune system, so children may actually be less likely to get sick.
2. Continuing your child's participation in swimming will help to keep the repetition of skills going so that they don’t have to get back into their routine when they return to lessons.
3. Having a break often results in a learning plateau of previously established skills. So your child may actually regress over the winter break if they are not actively engaging in water activity.
4. With the cooler weather comes a less active lifestyle. Swimming lessons provide your child with a healthy and fun activity to get them out of the house. Less video games and more water play!
So when you are considering suspending your child's lessons over winter, remember to take into account the benefits of continuing and do not believe the myths! Practice is key to your child retaining a skill for life.
