To master swim skills children can learn to swim year-round at a local swimming facility by practicing lifesaving skills and water safety.

It is so important children know the basics of pool safety by starting swimming lessons before the summer season is upon us. Since children tend to be less active during the winter months, what better way to promote exercise and activity than kids swimming lessons when the ground is covered in snow. Swimming lessons during the long winter months is also one of the best forms of exercise for children.
There is Never a Bad Time to Learn How to Swim
I was a competitive swimmer growing up in rural Iowa and we practiced swimming year-round. My own children don’t swim competitively, nor do they love swimming as much as I did, but they are most certainly equipped with the lifesaving skill of swimming. My children took year-round swimming lessons for years because swimming is an essential life skill and kids need to learn how to swim. Swimming lessons should not stop once school begins. Winter swim lessons are just as important as summer swim lessons.
As sad as this statistic is to read, drowning is the second leading cause of death for children ages 1 to 19. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in the of summer 2017, there were 163 child drowning deaths in the United States and 70% of these were children under the age of five.
Remember, you can’t always be there. Learning to swim may save their life one day.
Enrolling your children in swim lessons at Big Blue Swim School is the best action plan a parent can provide to prevent drowning. Even advanced swimming skills cannot prevent drowning though. Parents still need to be vigilant about supervising children who have learned basic swimming skills. The best course of action is to provide your child with year round swimming lessons, especially during the winter months.
