A recent study found that 57% of children between 7-11 years old cannot swim. In a bid to change this Swimshop are running a ‘Save a Life, Learn to Swim’ campaign.
Swimshop have also put together some fun swimming games you can do as a family to increase your child’s confidence in the water.
Both James and Evelyn attend swimming lessons and bath have loved water from babies which has made taking them swimming much easier! James has been attending weekly lessons at our local leisure centre for almost 2 years now and his confidence in the water has sky rocketed. Not only do swimming lessons teach your child to swim but they also teach them water confidence and most importantly water safety which is so important.
If you are able to my advice would be to take your children swimming regularly, just being in the water will give them more confidence. Make bath times fun as this will make water seem less daunting and if you can swimming lessons really can be fantastic.
To help your children get swimming Swimshop have very kindly given us 2 sets of swim floats and arm bands to giveaway to our readers!
