Why should my child learn to swim?

Ensuring your child learns to swim at an early age not only provides endless health and social benefits, but could also one day save their life. Sadly, drowning is still the third most common form of accidental death in children and it only takes three seconds, so learning to swim really is an essential life skill.

Why should an adult learn to swim?

The feeling of accomplishment and your new-found confidence in the water are only the beginning; it's also a great way to keep fit, tone up, and meet new people. Click here to see just some of the benefits of learning to swim.
