Q. Summer’s over. Why would I take swimming lessons in the fall/winter?
A. The “off-season” is a great time to hone swimming skills. Our area is filled with indoor pools and waterparks that may be visited year round. Swim lessons outside of the summer season get children ready before outdoor fun begins, but also make indoor excursions a great way to spice up a winter afternoon. Learning to swim at an early age is a preventive measure that provides life-saving, life-long benefits. Learning to swim without the pressures of a full summer schedule allows children to enjoy and respect the water while learning aquatic risk management.
