Safety in the pool – the importance of kids’ swimming lessons
The ability to swim not only provides kids with a fun and healthy pastime, it also gives them valuable and potentially life-saving skills in the water. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, learning to swim is a powerful safety precaution for children between the ages of 1 and 4. Here are a few water safety statistics:
- One-fifth of all drowning deaths are children aged 14 or younger
- 80% of child drownings occur in the presence of parents
- Swimming lessons reduce the risk of drowning by nearly 90%
- Fifty-percent of children have no or low swimming ability
We are dedicated to giving kids the tools and resources they need to build the physical strength, agility, and safety awareness needed to swim easily and confidently in diverse bodies of water. Whether you want your kids to enjoy home swimming pools or frolic in the deep blue sea, swim classes with Evolution Swim Academy will help you and your child enjoy a lifetime of healthy and safe water activities.
We look forward to serving you in your family’s journey to safer swimming.
