Swimming & Snorkeling Adventures Perfect For Kids

Getting your children interested in sport has many useful benefits. Learning about vital life skills such as motivation, dedication, and perseverance at a young age is always useful for children. Much like adults though, children can get bored quickly and the novelty factor can wear off. One of the keys ways to maintain a child’s interest in sport is to add variety.

When it comes to swimming lazy summer days around the pool can be fun, but unless your child develops an interest in competitive swimming their interest can disappear almost as quickly as it started! Wildlife TV host and conservationist Scott Tucker recently appeared on WTNH’s ‘Good Morning Connecticut‘ with his 6 year old son, Race, and spoke about how much fun they had swimming and snorkeling in the rivers and streams of New England. By introducing children to swimming in natural waterways they not only improve their swimming skills but also learn about all of the interesting fish and wildlife that make up the ecosystem.

Tucker also acted as river head controller for 2011 Oceania Fly Fishing Championships which were held in Adaminaby New South Wales last November.
