We continue our Back to School series with more sports tips from Sun & Sand Sports. Today’s focus is swimming. Many swimmers love the freedom and the feeling of being weightless in the water, but for others swimming can be a scary experience – which is why it’s important to start kids out with swimming lessons at a young age. Sun & Sand Sports will give you the advice you need to kit your kids out in all the latest performance swimwear for the pool, with a few tips to get you started before the new school term begins.
Why is swimming so important?
Swimming is a great all-round activity and is also a form of exercise that is equal parts fun and fitness. Swimming not only helps to bring the heart rate up, it also reduces the impact of stress on the body. It is a great way to build endurance and stamina, along with muscle strength and general cardiovascular fitness – which is important for everyday activity, health and fitness. All of this is perfect for your child as it helps them maintain a healthy weight, healthy heart, healthy lungs and overall a healthier lifestyle. It evens tones muscles and builds strength in them, and not just the external strength, swimming also improves the form and personality of the swimmer – an all-round benefit for children.
