Swimming will bring children fitness and enjoyment for decades - it is a true life-long fitness activity. In fact, participants in our Master's swimming programs are still training and racing well into their 80's. Swimming is a great low-impact physical exercise that develops a strong cardiovascular core, builds muscle tone and ensures proportional muscular development as it uses all the body's major muscle groups. That is why it is considered by many experts to be the best workout of all.
There are other benefits too though. Swimming requires combinations of complex movements of all parts of the body, enhancing harmonious muscle function, grace and fluidity of movement. As a result, kids develop superior coordination coupled with high quality aerobic endurance, (the most important key to physical fitness). It also enhances children's natural flexibility (at a time when they ordinarily begin to lose it) by exercising all their major joints through a full range of motion.
Compared to other sports, competitive swimming is relatively injury free and it tends to attract positive peer groups. Perhaps it is the self-discipline and motivation that is instilled in swimmers, but research (and KBM's experiences) indicates that competitive swimmers generally obtain super grades in school. Competitive swimming yields many benefits - all while getting fit and having fun!
