Swimming benefits research

Early-years swimming has been proven to help kids to develop essential academic, social and personal skills. A four-year study of over 7,000 children by Griffith University found that swimming children were more advanced in physical and mental development when compared to their non-swimming peers. Did you know the 3- to 5-year-olds who swam were 11 months ahead of the normal population in verbal skills, six months ahead in math skills, and two months ahead in literacy skills?  Kids who participate in early-years swimming achieve personal milestones much earlier than the average population, regardless of social background or gender.
