Swimming develops muscles and coordination and is also great for cognitive processing by using multiple steps, such as moving the arms and legs, holding the breath and jumping into the water. Through songs and repetition your child’s cognitive and coordinating skills will develop more, along with their self esteem and the water will make them more relaxed. We also guarantee that we will be able to teach them to swim in just 5 days as long as they don’t have any muscular limitations. To download our Super Swimmers Foundation Swim Application CLICK HERE
