Regression in Confidence and Performance
Six months out of the water across winter’s break can lead to problems such as fear of the water and a decline in performance. Continued participation in swimming lessons across winter is the best way to prevent otherwise unwanted outcomes that may include being scared of the water, worried about the depth of the water, or just feeling uncomfortable in and around water.
A failure to attend lessons invariably leads to children being unable to perform at the level they were previously able to and, in turn, to a decline in confidence and performance.
It may be economically more advantageous to swim all-year round than to pay for additional lessons during summer or for extra lessons within a term to compensate for the decline in the child’s swimming development that has occurred over the winter break.
