Swimming is more than a sport, it can save your life.

To improve your overall health, swim!

Swimming is a low impact activity every member of your family will enjoy. From the casual recreational novice who swims the basic freestyle stroke to the serious competitor who completes thousands of meters a week, swimming benefits everyone.

Physically, you can benefit through a cardiovascular exercise without overtaxing your heart. As it is a full body exercise, you can burn as many calories per hour as running six miles in the same amount of time. By slowly increasing the rigor of your activity, your resting heart rate and respirations per minute will decrease. Reduction of blood pressure and stress result from regular swimming. Best of all, there is a low risk of injury.

In addition to improving your physical health, swimming supports emotional stability. Through water play, children learn social skills. Swimming on a team teaches them teamwork while competing as an individual. As team members, swimmers socialize with children of both genders and varied ages, improving their abilities to work with others.
