That is so trite to say that swimming is the sport most complete of all. It is also said that swimming is more a necessity than an option. Many countries already include swimming for children between the compulsory subjects in school. Perhaps for these reasons or any other simple, such as living near the sea or have a pool in the building every day parents opted for an induction into the water sooner. However, when we try to do so, doubts begin.
When to start. How to teach my children and why do are some of the questions that I faced as a mother. As I am not an expert in this area, I decided to find someone who would help me understand a bit more sport.
I was lucky to meet Professor Viviana Coniberti, who kindly clarified my doubts. I hope these explanations will be useful, and help you in aquatic education of your children.
If you have not had the opportunity to attend a swimming class for babies and want to get an idea of how to perform, here I selected a video where you can see some parents in class with their babies. It is interesting to see how relaxed they are little children in class.
Viviana, what are the main benefits of practicing swimming for children and babies?
As the sport of swimming exercises as many muscles, the practice benefits the child's physical development. However, this physical is only one of the benefits that swimming provides.
Swimming techniques for infants and children vary widely depending on the country. In a general, in Latin America is homogenizing the concept of Matroswimming (swimming with mom), although there are certain trends to individual teacher-child classes. In Europe there are different trends depending on the country, where swimming with the teacher is more common in Latin America.
