According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) There are approximately 3,500 fatal unintentional drownings (non-boating related) annually in the United States — that’s about ten deaths per day. An additional 347 people died each year from drowning in boating-related incidents. About one in five people who die from drowning are children age 14 and younger. As you can see from these statistics it’s extremely important that you and your children know how to swim, just in case.
In addition to swimming being a skill that everyone should master, it’s also extremely healthy and good for your body. Even elderly people who have trouble walking long distances can usually swim for their health and enjoyment because in the water you are practically weightless, so therefore there is very little stress on your bones, ligaments, and joints that can lead to pain.
