Teaching swimming by ability rather than age

Assessments and Activities for Teaching SwimmingSwimming is a widely popular sport and activity with great health-related fitness benefits.

However a significant percentage of children are unable to swim with any degree of skill, meaning not only are they missing out on the health benefits, but they also are at risk when in the water.
