Swim Lessons Save Lives!
Sure it’s cold! And yes it is a pain to get everyone bundled up to go outside. But it is warm in the gym and especially in the pool area. And the water is at least 85 degrees at Gold’s Gym in Newburgh. Here are some great reasons to keep swimming over the winter at Hudson Valley Swim.:
Core skills that children will learn to prepare themselves for a safe swim this Summer include:
Burn Energy and Exercise Instead of TV.
Your kids say there is nothing to do so they turn on the TV or their XBOX. They have so much energy and nothing to do but be a couch potato because it is cold outside. Swimming is a great winter activity to help with the cabin fever.
Winter is the perfect time for swim lessons because it will get your kids prepped and ready for a Summer of pool activity. Learning to swim does not happen overnight. Do you want them to learn over the summer, or do you want them to KNOW over the summer? Common sense says the latter so this means you need to use the fall, winter and spring to train them.
If they have been making great strides over the spring and summer, what happens when they take 6 months off? Swimming is a year-round activity. It keeps them healthy and safe but also will advance their skills. Doggy Paddle today and Butterfly stroke tomorrow.
