Parents and athletes alike will attest to the positive benefits of participating in organized swimming: great exercise, improvement in stroke technique, every child competes in several events, and, most importantly, lots of fun. Because swimming is a life-time sport, enjoyed by people of all ages, skills learned by young swimmers will be used for the rest of their lives.Due to the competitive nature of the league, participants should have enough skill and courage to swim the length of the pool without stopping to rest.
