School’s out for Summer: 5 Reasons to Sign up for Swimming Lessons!

You might feel done with the busy schedule of activities now that school is over – but you shouldn’t be! Sure, summer is a time of freedom and doing whatever you and the kids want, but taking time of your week for swimming lessons at Goldfish Swim School won’t bog you down. In fact, it presents a few benefits for you and the kids! Here are 5 Reasons to Sign up for Swimming Lessons:

1. It gives your kids a schedule.

This benefits the kids and you, Mom! Summer is great for adopting a laissez faire attitude…to a point. Because after a while, the kids usually start coming up to you for suggestions on what to do because they’re getting bored. Keeping an activity or two on the schedule helps your kids know what they’re doing each week and gives them something to look forward to.

2. There’s more time to practice new skills outdoors.

Chances are you and the kids will be heading to the lake, a beach or a pool this summer. That’s actually a perfect pairing with swimming lessons at Goldfish Swim School, because your kids will be able to practice and improve upon those extraordinary results they’ll be seeing during their weekly swim lessons. And we all know that getting better is about practicing as much as possible – since repetition is key when learning any new skill.

3. You can feed upon their natural desire to get in the water.

In summer, kids flock to the water. Even if your daughter only dips her toes in or splashes around up to her ankles, she still wants to be in the water. So why not capitalize on that desire and enthusiasm and enroll her in swimming lessons? And, even if your child “knows” how to swim, he or she will benefit from learning how to swim at Goldfish Swim School. Our instructors use integrity, compassion and trust to teach kids how to swim correctly. Help your child be the best he or she can be!

4. It helps keep kids safe around water.

Drowning is a very real concern for kids in the summer, and teaching your kids swimming skills provides lifelong, life-saving skills that every child should know.  At Goldfish Swim School, we also teach young swimmers water safety in and around the water – including how to react to prevent a potential emergency in the water and what to do in an actual emergency. (Parents, you can recognize the signs of drowning and learn what to do in an emergency, too.) You can feel confident having your kids celebrate summer in the water this year because they’re learning to be safe.

5. Keep on progressing.

If your child is already enrolled in swim lessons at Goldfish Swim School, don’t take a break over summer. Have fun, keep on progressing and learning new swim skills – and practice them outdoors all summer long!
