A recent study found that 57% of children between 7-11 years old cannot swim. In a bid to change this Swimshop are running a 'Save a Life, Learn to Swim' campaign.
Swimshop have put together some fun swimming games you can do as a family to increase your child's confidence in the water,It's in the form of a free PDF download that you can get here:

I myself cant swim and I wont lie as a result I have been too scared to take our kids swimming in our local swimming pools,I have looked into swimming lessons often but I have often been too scared to book any,I think maybe it's about time I and our kids learnt to swim even more so as we live 10 minutes from the beach and we have to walk by the harbor on pretty much a daily basis and i'm always terrified one of the kids will trip and fall in and I wont be able to save them.
As a start I have decided that we will buy the kids some swimming aids and under constant supervision we will let them gain confidence in the sea when we hit the beach and from there swimming lessons for us are a must.
Check out the learn to swim campaign sponsors swimshop where you will find swimming costumes and equipment online.
