Stay Warm and Keep Swimming

Stay warm this winter

With the weather cooling down and the long days of summer done and dusted for another year, it can be tough to stay motivated on those chilly afternoons and wet evenings. But one thing you don’t want to ditch during the cold snap is your child’s swimming lessons. Swimming as regular exercises strengthens the immune system so children may be less likely to fall ill over the colder months. Having breaks over winter often results in children’s skills experiencing a plateau or even going backwards. At Northcote Aquatic & Recreation Centre we run a 48 week Swim Program to ensure that your child continual progression and water safety awareness. 

Just a few months without lessons can have an impact on the progression of skill development and vital water safety skills that every child needs – in fact,  23 % of fatal drowning occur in school aged children take place during autumn and winter. Continuity and constant exposure to aquatic environments are the best ways to ensure your child is prepared and safe in & around the water.

At Northcote Aquatic & Recreation Centre, we think winter is the perfect time to make the best of your YMCA Swimming Lessons membership – the pool is calm, the air temperature is pleasant and the water is heated and ready for you to enjoy! Membership benefits such as access to our indoor and outdoor pool and discounted holidays programs make YMCA Swimming Lessons the perfect choice for your child’s vital lifesaving water safety skills.
