Your child's choice of competitive swimming offers many benefits that carry over into all other aspects of life. Swimming is not only healthy physically, but just as important, mentally. Commitment, goal-setting, time-management and self-confidence are all benefits of participating in the sport of swimming.
USA Swimming is structured to allow competition within age groups and with swimmers of the same relative ability. This encourages realistic goal-setting and opportunity for improvement. The discipline learned as a trained young athlete can affect him or her for a lifetime. Encourage, not pressure, your athlete's involvement. Keep the activity fun. Most importantly, recognize this opportunity for your son or daughter to be the "best they can be."
