THE STARCLAIRE DOLPHINS SWIM TEAM
There are many wonderful reasons your child should participate in swim team. The Starclaire Dolphins coaches help our students to prepare for swim team and see all the benefits in the program.
Swim team is a fun way to teach your child a life skill. Your child learns proper mechanics, proper breathing technique and competes in competitive length pools – and has no idea they’re learning how to save their own life!
Children on swim teams create a bond with one another. You cheer your friends on as they race. Your friends cheer you on as you race. This self-esteem booster is a great way for your kids to make new friends and strengthen relationships with existing ones.
Although swimming itself is usually an individual sport, swim team creates a team environment for your child to belong. Your kids receive early life lessons on how to win (and lose) as a team, how to give it their best and how to exhibit good sportsmanship.
While most kids spend their summers watching TV or playing video games, your kids will have weekly swim team practices that improve their cardiovascular fitness and helps keep them healthy. Swimming is an excellent workout since it works your whole body and is easy on the joints. Unlike some sports, swimming is a fitness routine your child can do well into adulthood.
Often parents are just as involved in swim team as the kids. During meets, there is a lot of down time for both the kids and the parents to get to know each other!
