Swim for Good Grades

November 3, 2010

Researchers from Griffith University in Australia are in the midst of a study to find out if swimming helps children to become smarter. They say children who learn to swim appear to be smarter than children who don’t.

The study looked at over ten thousand children in Australia from five years of age and older.

Professor Robyn Jorgensen, of Griffith University said “Anecdotal evidence found swimmers tended to be more confident than same-age, non-swimming peers.”

Imagine the reaction from parents if my response to the question, “Should I get a tutor for my child,” was, “No, not a tutor – but a swimming coach would be great”?
