Why Perpetual Swim Lessons

The benefits of perpetual swimming lessons are well documented. The Washington Times reported on an Australian study conducted by the Griffith Institute for Educational Research that found “that the younger the child began swimming lessons and the longer they continued, the greater the benefits. Benefits come not only in the form of reaching physical developmental milestones early, but also those involving language and mathematics.”

USA Swimming quotes a Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine 2009 study which says that “Participation in formal swimming lessons can reduce the risk of drowning by 88 percent among children aged one to four years.”
