How the swimming program at Northbridge is incredibly beneficial for your child's health

How the swimming program at Northbridge is incredibly beneficial for your child's health We are really pleased that we have been able to get swimming up and running again for our PE classes, LEAP and Bronze, Silver and Gold swim teams at Northbridge International School Cambodia.

We are really pleased that we have been able to get swimming up and running again for our PE classes, LEAP and Bronze, Silver and Gold swim teams at Northbridge International School Cambodia. 

The Aquatics team have been working hard to ensure a safe environment for all swimmers. Our students have been enthusiastic and actively participated in our PE swimming classes.

During the lessons, the students are being assessed to see which level they meet and what we can work on in order to improve their technique and fitness levels. We are very excited about our new Aquatics center and cannot wait to begin our swimming lessons in the new pool.

Swimming has been around for many years and is known as one of the best all-body workouts a person can do. It is a low-impact workout which means that it does not put stress on the joints, but at the same time, it involves all muscles.

Swimming has many benefits for your health. It is a great cardio-vascular workout which keeps your heart rate up, helping to make your heart and lungs stronger. Swimming helps in developing endurance as well as building muscle strength. It is appropriate for all ages and levels of fitness as well as ability.

Exercise in general improves your mood and helps to manage stress and swimming is no exception. For our Nagas team, swimming helps to develop a competitive spirit and determination to improve on their times. It has also created friendships between swimmers from different schools.

We look forward to continuing to provide a safe and fun environment for the students to learn about swimming and develop their own individual skills while staying healthy and keeping fit.
