The Benefits of Aquatics
Each summer, parks and recreation professionals unlock the gates to community pools, hiring lifeguards and preparing programs. Running aquatic facilities can be hard work, but for residents, summer marks the beginning of warm days relaxing on the pool deck, pool parties and swim lessons.

What is the appeal of these crystal clear waters? Research indicates that there is more participation in aquatic based recreation and sports than any other activity. WHY? What does an aquatic facility mean to a community? In essence, what are the benefits? I’m going to highlight some:

Physical Benefits:
•Improves posture, flexibility, muscular endurance, strength and balance
•Stimulates circulation
•Promotes proper breathing
•Rehabilitation of under used or healing muscles
Social Benefits:
•Lots of laughs and fun
•Establish friendships
•Safe sport for all ages and fitness levels
Psychological Benefits:
•Encourages a positive attitude
•Feel great after workouts
•Increased energy levels
•Stress Reduction
