The Truth About Kids Swim Skills and Health for Life
Have your kids completed a 'Learn to Swim' program? You probably enrolled them because of the frightening statistic that 1 in 10 people who drown are between 0-4 years old. On graduating they know the basics of how to swim, but it usually isn't yet second nature.
Studies have shown that kids who continue to swim, with a club, for at least another 12 months, find a life-long confidence for getting back in the pool for fun and exercise. Swimming is one of the few physical activities that exercises the majority of the body muscle groups and gives your heart and lungs a work-out, while being gentle on the joints. Why would you need anything else?
At the Ballarat GCO Swim Club, we cater for most age groups; from the young kids who have completed 'Learn to Swim', to Juniors who are a bit more advanced but not yet ready for competition, all the way up to 17 and 18 year olds who are serious about competition.
We hold training sessions every Monday, Wednesday and Friday evening, and Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday mornings, for various levels of swimmers. Most of these are at the UniSports pool (Federation University, Mount Helen). Parents in the Mount Helen, Mount Clear, Buninyong and surrounds find this location ideal.
