Have swimming lessons restarted?
It seems to be the question on everyone’s mind, when are swimming lessons going to restart? Aquastar Swim has restarted our lessons abiding by the state government restrictions. We are following strict COVID-19 protocols to keep you, our swimmers and our staff safe and healthy. 2020 has been hard work for everyone, particularly for us Victorians.
A massive concern for families is water safety and reducing the risk of our children encountering danger near water. Having missed many months of swimming lessons, Aquastar staff are very excited to get your kids back in the water in a COVID safe manner.
Even more so this year, swimming lessons are really important for your children! Studies suggest that swimming skills and water safety education reduces the risk of drowning or injury in children. There are many reasons why you should get back into swimming lessons this summer!
As the weather warms up, your kids are more likely to be around bodies of water. Regardless of the waters depth, size or how well supervised they are, there are inherent risks of being near water. It is incredibly important that children and adults all learn water safety and how to reduce the risk of harm for others. Swimming lessons may give both you and your child greater confidence in their ability to swim and act around water. Swimming pools, particularly private residential pools have a significantly higher risk of danger. Enrolling your children in swimming lessons this summertime will be a great way to get your kids out in the water, as well as teach them some potentially life saving skills!
Swimming lessons set you up for life
Especially here in Australia, swimming is an essential part of our lives. Whether you live on the coast, a lake or river or have a great public pool in your community, many Aussie’s have great memories of swimming and spending time near the water. Swimming lessons are imperative to help you gain confidence and understanding of water and water safety. The confidence you can gain from swimming lessons can also improve your health and wellbeing through the relaxing pace of swimming and ability to enjoy your time at the beach! Enrolling yourself or your children in swimming lessons is an investment in a great life of beach days, swimming and water activities!
Swimming lessons are a great way to socialise
After the year that was, many kids have spent a long time apart from their friends! As well as being important that your kids are getting back in the water to continue to develop their skills, swimming lessons can be a great way to get them back out there with their friends. The instructional time in lessons helps participants foster social skills, communication and how to interact with others in a safe environment. If you’re looking for a way to get your children involved in a social activity that is beneficial in more ways than one, enrol them in swimming lessons at Aquastar today!
How Long does it Take Adults to Learn to Swim
Learning how to swim is an important life skill that many of us acquire as children – however, not everyone has the opportunity to do so. The good news is that it’s never too late to learn how to swim and given the correct tuition, adults can easily acquire the necessary skills.
How can I go Swimming if I Wear Glasses
In this day and age, many adults and even children wear glasses on a daily basis – whether it be for reading, driving or for general day-to-day activities. When it comes to swimming, bespectacled folk deliberate over the best approach to maintaining good vision in the water; the truth is, it really does come down to the individual!
How our Child Progress Reports Keep you up to Date
The progression through these grades is carefully guided by our expert swim instructors, who keep track of each child’s individual progression via Child Progress Reports. These reports detail the level your child is at and how they are progressing, meaning you know exactly how far along the scale your child is in terms of swimming ability.
