Why are infant swim lessons important?
Now that you know our pricing, you may be wondering why infant swim lessons are important. If you are looking for an in depth explanation to this question, head on over to our blogs and check out the one titled “Why are infant swim lessons important?” Here you will find an excerpt from that blog and one of the main reasons why infant swim lessons are vital.
Comfort in the Water
Have you ever met people who grew up by the ocean, and have absolutely zero fear about going in the ocean, confronting large and intimidating waves? Well we have too. Have you ever noticed that when you ask them why they have very little fear surrounding the ocean, they usually always say something along the lines of, “Well, I grew up in the water.” This is exactly the point we want to get across here.
Early exposure to water in a safe environment, with supervision, allows a child to be accustomed to the water. They learn how it feels to float. They overcome any innate fear responses they may have with the guidance of instructors and parents that allows them to gain confidence in the water. Eventually, they learn the skills necessary to navigate the water themselves. However, that is more for the older kids. Let’s stick with the toddlers.
Building up comfort in the water at an early age allows them to grow up without fear of the water. This reduces their risk of developing aquaphobia, the fear of the water, to almost zero. Comfort in the water reduces their risk of panics in swimming scenarios and makes them more competent as a person in and around water. Fortunately, water has more uses than swimming such as surfing, wakeboarding, and many other fun activities people do to enjoy the water. If your infant develops comfort in the water at an early age, they are much more likely to not only lack paralyzing fear around water, but also make use of it in productive and fun ways.
If your infant does not come in contact with water at an early age and learn to navigate it in a safe and competent way, they are much more likely to grow up avoiding it altogether. If they are to take swim lessons later in life, they my find it difficult to get comfortable if they did not have early exposure to it.
Although its certainly not impossible to learn to swim later in life, it will absolutely help them if they were taught at an early age to remain calm and use the survival techniques they were taught as babies.
