Sometimes people avoid swimming due to the colder weather approaching however there are many reasons why you should keep going!

If you have ever heard that swimming in winter makes you more prone to catching a cold, don’t believe it, it is only an old wives tale! Swimming during the winter time instead helps build a stronger immune system and makes you more resilient to stress and other illnesses.

If you still fear that it may affect your health here are some good habits to maintain:

  • Wearing a swimming cap during the lessons
  • Wearing warm clothing and footwear for after lessons
  • Wearing more coverage with bathers such as a rash vest
  • No other workout is low impact but achieves high results building muscles, burning calories and stimulating your brain. The great thing about swimming is that it’s for everyone! You can also swim in rain, hail or shine, unlike other sports which get called off in bad weather so it keeps your child active throughout the whole year.

Lastly, the best way for you to remember and keep developing skills is through repetition. If you take your children or yourself out for 3-4 months in winter, they may lose their technique and take longer to progress through the level or worse, forget important knowledge when they get back to swimming in public in the early days of spring and summer.

So even though winter is coming around remember to just keep swimming, just keep swimming, swimming, swimming!
