Swimming is a life skill that is valuable to student’s development, physically, socially, and emotionally. Five Star Swim Schools motto is “Swim like a Star!” This motto signifies the confidence that students gain when they learn to swim. We love seeing this confidence develop in children, from their first lessons, feeling timid or fearful. Then, as they master skills and move up through the skill levels, we see that confidence on full display. We have found, that in talking with parents that the self-esteem boost attained during swim lessons carries over into other aspects of their children’s lives.
