Now that the summer has arrived, it is time to get your little ones involved in the local or community swim league. Swim leagues are often associated by county, so if you want to get your kids enrolled in a swim league for the summer, be sure to look online, as most of the county websites will have information regarding swim leagues. Another way to find a swim league for your children is to visit your local or community public pool. More often than not, the public pool will have a swim league for children of different ages.
Adult swim leagues also exist. Your best bet to find a swim league for yourself is to research online. Similar to swimming leagues for kids, each county will provide information regarding adult swim leagues in which you can participate. Aquatic centers and health and wellness organizations like the YMCA may have adult leagues for you to join. If you live in a small district or county, it may be harder for you to find adult leagues, as most leagues will cater to more heavily populated cities and areas. Do not let that deter you, all it really means is you may have to drive farther than anticipated to find a swim league, but if you are passionate about swimming, then this should not bother you.
Be careful, as swimming injuries can occur, especially if you are older or have not participated in swimming activities in quite awhile. For children, common swimming injuries result in “swimmer’s ear” which is a term for a type of ear infection. For adults, joint and muscle pains can occur, usually around the shoulder, elbow, back and neck regions of the body. It is recommended that you consult a doctor to make sure you are in the right physical condition for a swim league, and if you are given the green light, then enjoy yourself to the max.
