Being able to swim is considered an essential life skill. Not only is it fun for children, but it can keep them safe and also keep them healthy.
1. Swimming may save your child’s life one day
Swimming is the only sport which could save your child’s life. Drowning is one of the most common causes of accidental death in children and making sure that your child is comfortable in and around water is essential to their safety.
The Aqua Life swimming lessons are an ideal way to introduce children to the water. Our child-centred program is designed to introduce little swimmers to submersion, breath control, kicking on both the front and back and underwater swimming.
It’s never too early to learn to swim. Our swimming instructors are fully qualified and will help your child to develop their swimming ability at their own pace.
2. Swimming is great for their health
Swimming keeps the heart and lungs healthy, increases stamina and can help with balance and posture. Swimming can develop your child’s strength, co-ordination and flexibility at a faster rate than children who don’t swim. Swimming throughout their childhood will encourage them to see physical activity as a part of everyday life.
The Aqua Life offers a range of lessons catering for beginners to more confident swimmers. Important skills they will learn include self-submersion and breath control, front and back kicks, and freestyle swimming with their face in the water.
3. Swimming – a lifelong skill
Much like riding a bike, once you know how to swim, it’s a skill you’ll have for life. Not having the ability to swim could put your child at a disadvantage because there are so many activities and sports that involve water.
The Aqua Life program also includes swimming lessons for adults in Ottawa. Many adults struggle with a fear of the water, whether it’s at the pool, oceanside, or when out boating. This is a natural feeling if you’re an adult who does not know how to swim. You can learn to swim in a warm, relaxing environment in our one-on-one or semi-private lessons. We will take the time to get to know you, meet you at your level and keep you progressing at your own pace.
