Swimming uses all the muscles in the body so whether you swim a gentle breaststroke or hammer butterfly, you will get a full body workout.
In competition, swimmers challenge themselves physically while learning to accept wins and losses. There is also friendly competition on swim team that teaches kids to support and encourage their teammates.
By joining a swim team, your child will be able to learn valuable life skills. Kids learn character-building skills such as dedication, discipline, confidence, and resilience.
