Why is swimming on the long run important for your child?
Swimming is one of the healthiest sports. The entire musculature is stressed, the joints are protected, the blood circulation and the entire cardiovascular system is stimulated. Obesity and adiposity in children can be controlled and prevented. In addition to the positive effect on endurance, swimming also trains the coordinative abilities of your child.
The movements of the arms and legs are carried out coupled and coordinated. The sense of balance and body control are trained by the changing positions that are taken and held in the water. In addition to that the sense of orientation under water is getting improved.
A child who is used to the water, who knows the basic skills (submergion, breathing, floating, gliding and jumping) and who has learned to move in various and secure ways in the water will be more likely to really enjoy swimming and continue in to later life.
