Once your child has learnt the basics, joining a local
swimming club is the logical progression.
For some children going to swimming club each week is a
recreational activity with their friends, for others it's the first
step towards competitive swimming and the long road to becoming a
champion. While setting a record is superb and wining feels great,
it's not for everyone. But all club swimmers learn important life
skills as well as reaping the well-known benefits of
swimming. Most clubs offer tryout sessions where you can your
child can see what happens in a club training session and your
child's swimming abilities will be assessed by one of the coaches.
