Can you say, SCHOLARSHIP?
Our job teaching students at SWIMkids USA is so worth it. We’re both saving lives and preparing our students for successful college careers.
Wait a second. That seems like an awful lot to assert, right? Wrong!
From 2009 to 2013, researchers from Griffith University collected data from our swim school students (as well as little swimmers from Australia and New Zealand), and what they discovered is truly amazing.
On average, early swimmers are seven months ahead of their peers in motor achievement, as well as 10 months ahead both cognitively and linguistically. So that means: advanced development in locomotion, grasping skills and visual motor integration. Cognitively and linguistically, the early-developed abilities include better mathematic reasoning, reading and comprehension skills as well as an improved ability to recall short stories and to listen and follow directions. Check out the official report here.
When your kids are finally ready for their first day of kindergarten, they’ll be miles ahead of their classmates.
But the crucial advantages don’t stop there!
Did you know there are a ton of swimming scholarships available?
That’s right. If you start your kids in swimming early, then they have a serious chance at knocking out collegiate debt.
Swimming doesn’t just save lives- it saves money in the long run, and it grows the brain!
