Swimming at the YWCA

Why is it Important to Learn to Swim?

Swimming is a sport that builds overall fitness and improves coordination, balance, and also enhances self-esteem and self-confidence. Learning to swim and practicing water safety will give children a lifetime of invaluable skills.

Aquatics International reports that “a new study substantiates what aquatic professionals have long believed…The findings indicate that formal swim training could reduce drowning risk in children ages 1-4 by more than 85%.”

Top 5 reasons why I love swimming at the YWCA! By Chloe, Age 4

1. They use the sun to make the pool warm!*

2. I love my teachers!chloe

3. I can jump off the diving board by myself!

4. My daddy is happy that I know how to be safe around the water!

5. Swimming helps keep me healthy and strong!

* The YWCA has a solar-heated pool.

Our next session of swim lessons begins the first Monday of every month. New participants can go to our website for more info.

    It is so important to get the kids engaged in swimming from an early age, it seems that the YWCA of Asheville is doing something right to have such good comments. Having visited the pool a few times myself I can say that I completely agree with the above. Well done!

    You should be proud of your swimming lessons, my daughter learned to swim here and she is like a fish in water now when we go on holiday, the best thing about it is that she is small for age, so she will be diving under the water and people look on shocked. Fantastically good place to come! Thank you !
