Benefits for kids
Swimming is an essential life skill that all children should have, as it lowers the risk of drowning and ensures your child knows how to stay safe in and around the water.
There are a number of health benefits of swimming, as it keeps children’s hearts and lungs healthy, improves strength and flexibility, increases stamina and even improves balance and posture.
And importantly, it’s also really fun!
Swim England reports show that swimming has been ranked the number one indoor activity for parents to toddlers. Lots of children love getting into the water and splashing around, so let’s get them back in the pools!View our kid's swim academy
Benefits for adults
Swimming has both a positive impact on your physical and mental health, regardless of age.
Adults can utilise swimming as a relaxing, de-stressing full-body workout that will lower stress levels, reduce anxiety and depression, and improve your sleep patterns.
It’s also a great way to increase your heart rate, help aid recovery from an injury, build endurance, muscle strength and cardiovascular fitness.Join a swim class
