Swimming is the most injury free of all children’s sporting activities, and can deliver fitness and enjoyment for life. Participants in Masters swimming programs are still training and racing well into their 80s. Here are five reasons why your children should learn to swim:


Learn to swim

At Ogden Otters we believe that swimming together should be an integral part of family life so we have developed a range of activities to encourage this. Aquacise sessions that include antenatal and postnatal classes. Parent and baby sessions, the pool is maintained at warmer temperatures allowing babies from as young as 12 weeks to enjoy a 30 minute session with Mum or Dad.  Fun swims where children get to hone and shows off their skills in a non threatening environment.
