School has been out and this is the time for kids to take a mental break from yellow school buses, school uniforms, and heavy backpacks. This, for many kids, means binge watching cartoons, having all-night video game sessions, stuffing their faces with every junk food in sight, and snap-chatting their summers away. According to the Australian organization Healthy Kids, Eat Well Get Active, studies have found, that "the number of overweight and obese kids ha[s] risen from around 1 in 10 children in 1985 to almost 1 in 4 children in [recent years]."
For some people, swimming has been a part of their lives from a young age. For other people, while they want to be a good swimmer, they only have a little swimming experience. Luckily, at Merritt Clubs, we offer assorted competitive aquatics programs.
