The Value of Swimming Lessons

A recent study from the Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine notes that risk of accidental drowning is reduced by as much as 88% in children ages one to four who participate in formal swimming lessons.

In the five to 19 year old age bracket, children who had not taken formal swimming lessons were almost twice as likely to drown as those who had participated in formal swimming lessons.

The study suggested that there was no significant association between informal instruction and drowning risk.

As we live in a country containing the vast majority of the world’s fresh water, swimming lessons are not only a fun activity for our children but a vitally important piece of the safety puzzle.
