While it’s no surprise that swimming has many benefits like health, fitness, and socialization, did you know that swimming can also help kids do better in school? Researchers out of Australia say there are intellectual benefits. Kids are getting smarter and aquatics instructor Saunte Bruton agrees. “It teaches them another way of dealing with being afraid of things and it also teaches them the concept of actually doing more than one thing at a time,” said Bruton.
Swimming has been scientifically linked to better academic performance. Studies have found that kids who swam during their development years achieved several physical and mental milestones faster than their non-swimming counter parts. Researchers found that the type of instruction and sensory learning kids are exposed to early on in swimming lessons translates almost seamlessly into the type of learning they’ll do in the classroom. A four-year study reveals the younger children are when they start swimming, the smarter the pool of talent when it comes to intellectual and social skills.
