Why Swim Lessons are Important
Swim lessons address safety issues in a structured manner, teaching children first to be unafraid of water and get their faces wet, then to float and breathe properly in a way that self-education cannot teach. The repetition used in organized swim lessons triggers the same neurological result again and again and resulting in learning, according to the Broward County Drowning Prevention Task Force. The process is especially effective for small children.
The use of movement along with explanations and demonstrations by the teacher reinforces learning the movement. A progressive program of skills such as that used by the Red Cross Learn to Swim Program builds simple skills, one upon the other until the child is able to put together breathing and movement into a swim stroke. Simple strokes like the dog paddle and elementary backstroke give way to the more powerful and efficient breaststroke, backstroke and freestyle stroke. By building from simple to complex and using repetition, swim lessons educate while minimizing stress.
