Why All Children Should Learn How to Swim

child being held underwater for swimming lessonsPart of the summer fun in North Carolina undoubtedly includes beaches. The lure of vibrant, cool water is simply too much for many to ignore. From swimming to boating, there is much to be done on the waters of the state. Unfortunately, for many children, those waters pose a life-threatening danger simply because those children don’t know how to swim.

If you have a child and are trying to decide if swimming lessons are the right move, the answer is that they are. Drowning is the leading cause of death, outside of natural causes, of children between the ages of one and 14. Here are just five reasons why learning how to swim makes sense for every child.


Neighbors have pools. The beach is just a short walk away. Your family enjoys boating. No matter what the reason, learning how to swim means that your child can be safe when spending time on or near the water. Accidents happen, but knowing how to swim can very well save your child’s life.

Heart Health

Swimming is a fantastic cardio workout because it uses all of the muscles in the body. If you are looking for a great exercise for your child, swimming is it. Your child will get more resistance in the water than on dry land, increasing the amount of work the heart has to do.

Lifelong Sport

Swimming, or some type of water activity, is one of the only exercises that can be undertaken until the day we die. When your child learns how to swim, they are learning a lifelong activity.


Participation in sports has been shown to increase a child’s self-esteem. If your child loves swimming, enrolling them on a team will help to boost their self-image. Not to mention the added value of learning teamwork.

Physical Fitness

Obesity is a growing epidemic among our country’s children. Swimming is a great way to lose weight and stay in shape. As an added bonus, the sport is easily participated in by anyone who is overweight.

If you are wondering whether or not your child should learn how to swim, the reasons above should be enough to make up your mind. Enroll your child in a local class. Even learning the basics can help to save their life.
