Winter swims CHILDREN who swim in winter will be fitter and have stronger immune systems, making them less susceptible to the usual winter illnesses. This is despite the â&#x20AC;&#x153;old wives taleâ&#x20AC;? that children will get sick swimming in the colder months. Former Commonwealth Games swimming medallist and Peninsula Aquatic Recreation Centre manager Simon Beqir said learning to swim in winter was crucial to ensuring children can swim confidently and independently, as well as maintaining their skills for increased swimming activities during summer. The recently opened centre in Frankston offers a learn-to-swim program for all ages and levels of ability. It encourages children to swim at through winter in a controlled environment using state-ofthe-art facilities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Swimming is the best sport in winter to keep fit, boost childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s immune systems and make them less susceptible to common winter illnesses,â&#x20AC;? Mr Beqir said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At PARC, the temperature is 26-30 degrees year round and the centre is protected by weather-resistant entrances.â&#x20AC;? PARCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s swim program includes a guarantee that every child will progress after three terms, otherwise they will receive a complimentary second lesson per week until they do.
