There are many wonderful reasons your child should participate in a summer league swim team. Our stroke school helps prepare our students for swim team year-round. Joining a swim team can give kids many benefits and be incredibly rewarding. It gives them the chance to be part of a team, build confidence, improve skills, get consistent physical activity, set and strive for goals, and have a lot of fun! The typical age for a child to join a swim team is 5-7 years old. It is a great idea to start your child out swimming young!
Swim team is a fun way to teach your child a life skill. Your child learns proper mechanics, proper breathing techniques and competes in competitive length pools – and has no idea they’re learning how to save their own life!
Children on swim teams create a bond with one another. You cheer your friends on as they race. Your friends cheer you on as you race. This self-esteem booster is a great way for your kids to make new friends and strengthen relationships with existing ones.
Although swimming is usually an individual sport, swim team creates a team environment for your child to belong. Your kids receive early life lessons on how to win (and lose) as a team, how to give it their best and how to exhibit good sportsmanship.
