Beware – the half-term holidays are here!

Whether it’s sibling squabbling, temper tantrums or plain old boredom, holidays always remind us just how much energy children have to waste.

Worry not – York Sport’s multi-award-winning swim team have the perfect solution to your woes.

Finding a way to keep your kids active and entertained throughout the school break can be incredibly difficult, especially when you’re on a budget.

But it needn’t be – York Sport’s Half Term Swim Scheme is designed to rapidly improve your child’s swimming ability in a fun and supportive environment for the affordable price of £31.25.

Fun (and good for you too)

But why choose swimming? The obvious benefit is the fact it’s an essential life-saving skill, but York Sport like to focus on the specific health benefits and of course – the fun!

Swimming is an excellent form of low-impact cardiovascular exercise for the whole body and helps to develop strong bones and muscles, flexibility and coordination.

“It’s also a great way to develop self-confidence and social skills!” adds Cath Jones, one of York Sport’s swimming instructors.

Along with being taught by the team who won two 2016 Little Viking Awards, children also benefit from small class sizes and consecutive lessons.

As classes are limited to six children, they get much more concentrated attention from our swim instructors.

Children tend to progress at a faster rate as they remember what they did the previous morning much more easily compared to weekly sessions.

With York Sport’s Half Term Swim Scheme your child will benefit from developing a life-saving skill, kick-starting a new and healthy hobby, and having fun with other children.

Meanwhile parents can put their feet up and enjoy a coffee, safe in the knowledge their little ones will be sleeping right through the night after a good swim!
