Know Your Swim Goals for 2023

The start to a new year can be refreshing for many of us. Whether you've got a couple resolutions for the new year, you're looking for a reset, or setting some new goals, then January is a wonderful time to get started!

One of the most important factors when thinking about your fitness and social goals when it comes to swimming, and choosing a swim instructor for your children, is knowing your swim goals, and the path to achieving them.

Goals for Water Safety

Oftentimes, one of the earliest goals that we hear from parents and that our instructors stress from the very beginning, is water safety! Teaching water safety is really important when it comes to preventing water-related accidents and drowning, thus making it a necessary first step in swim lessons.

At Atlanta Swim Academy, safety is in our DNA. One of the ways we factor in water safety to swim goals is by implementing safe practices into the requirements for moving from one level to the next. If you are curious about ASA's goals and outlines for safety, check out our blog to read more about our 'Culture of Safety.'

Goals for Better Health

Aside from practicing good water safety, one of the other most common reasons that parents sign their children up for swim lessons is usually related to health and exercise. Many medical experts recommend that a child should spend at least 60 minutes a day being active, and swimming is a fantastic way to do so!
Swimmers, even when just starting out, use all the muscles in their bodies, making it a balanced form of exercise that does extreme wonders for heart and lung health. If one of your goals is to be more active in 2023, then swimming is a perfect choice. At ASA, we offer year-round swim lessons – this means that we can provide a perfect environment to help your children practice and achieve their swim goals, all without missing a beat. 

Goals for Social Skills

One of the often-forgotten benefits to participating in swim lessons are the immense benefits to building social skills and self-esteem in children. Social health is just as important as physical health, and it should absolutely be one of your swim goals! By building self-confidence and participating with other learners, swim lessons are fantastic for building social skills and learning to improve individually and work as a team.

If you keep up with ASA, you may already know how much we love the benefits of social health that swim lessons brings along with them, if not check out one of our recent blogs to learn more!
