Time in the Water
Posted on October 9, 2018
Just like learning to walk or to crawl, learning to swim is a loco motor skill that requires lots of time and practice to achieve. A child having just one half hour lesson each week for 52 weeks of the year will only accrue 26 hours of swim lesson time over the year. The more time children spend in the water the quicker they will learn to swim.
