5 Reasons: Why swimming should be an integral part of growing up?
- 25 March 2022
Swimming is without a doubt the most effective type of exercise for people of all ages in terms of keeping them emotionally and physically fit. Greetings wonderful people, I am Shiuli- the Sports Teacher (Swimming) here at Oakridge International School, Mohali.
I usually come across questions like how it is like to swim; what is the impact of swimming on a child’s growth; why swimming should be an integral part of growing up?
I believe student life is the best part of a person’s life cycle because it is during this time that they develop their character and other routines. It is the age when learning a new skill is simple and requires little effort. So, rather than putting it off until later, why not start learning to swim in school?
I have observed that most children find learning to swim to be a little frightening at first. When they overcome this and begin to learn the sport, they are receiving internal training in how to overcome their fears and face life more optimistically.
Even I was in the same league of students in my childhood days. Growing up I thought of overcoming this fear by pushing myself to learn this art. To date, I am proud and grateful for the decision I took that day.
From my years’ long experience in the field of swimming, here are 5 reasons why learning swimming should be an integral part of growing up:
Finding a swimming facility and a trainer can be tough at times, but having it at the school itself is the best, you could wish for. Being one of the best International schools in Mohali, Oakridge offers professional swimming training to the students. I am proud to be serving as a Swimming trainer at Oakridge International School, Mohali for the last 5 years.
We are all set to celebrate summers in full glory. This year let’s resolve to learn the beautiful live-saving art of swimming. Approximately 3/4th of Earth is composed of water, thus mother nature also indicates the importance of water.
Let’s start swimming!
