The Importance of Swimming

At Holy Trinity the children undertake a swimming programme for 1 term in Year 2 and 2 terms in Year 3. We believe that learning how to swim is incredibly important, not only as a source of physical activity but, moreover, swimming is a skill- one that is potentially life saving. We aim for our children to leave school in Year 6 with the ability to swim at least 25metres recommended by the Government. We hope that if you are able to, you will support your child with their development in swimming. The reasons below will demonstrate further it's importance:

1. Swim lessons reduce the risk of drowning.

Swimming is an essential life skill and you want to be confident that your child has mastered it.

2. Swimming builds whole body strength.

A swimming workout is a great total body workout, strengthening everything from the core to the legs to the arms. In swimming, a whole lot of muscles are working together as the children are pushing, pulling and kicking their way through the water.

3. Swimming helps children do better in school.

Swimming has been scientifically linked to a better academic performance. Studies have found that children who swam during their developmental years achieved several physical and mental milestones faster than their non-swimming counterparts. Researchers found that the type of instruction and sensory learning that children are exposed to early on in swimming lessons translates almost seamlessly into the type of learning they’ll do in the classroom.

4. Children who swim get the benefits of participating in an individual AND team sport.

This is one aspect of swimming that really makes it unique. Swimmers compete individually AND as a team to develop the skills needed to excel in a team environment.

5. Swimming is something they can do at any age!

Swimming is for everyone, both young and old. This activity is something that lasts a lifetime -- and you can always improve at it! Expose your child to swimming now and they will have a recreational, aerobic activity that they can continue to enjoy throughout the rest of their lives!
