Olympian Dara Torres Reintroduces Moms, Kids to Swimming dara torres #MTSwimTexas

This post is sponsored by MomTrends and SwimToday.

Swimming is fun! I can’t get my boys out of the pool these days, and as a matter of fact I guess you can’t get me out either. The bottom line is we use our pool as a way of cooling off in this scorching heat. But, the truth is my boys only see the pool in the scorching heat and it wasn’t until hearing Dara Torres’ passion about the #FunnestSport that I began to realize the disservice I am doing them. My boys love to be in the pool, but I had not been engaging their passion to make swimming a sport. We obsess over baseball and basketball, because that’s what we grew up around.

The opening day of the Phillips 66 National Championships was an opportunity for moms just like me to learn all about SwimToday and the #FunnestSport from none other than Olympian Dara Torres. The experience to hear a mom speak about a sport that she is passionate about is amazing. It was an opportunity for me to broaden my thinking when it comes to engaging my own children.

Dara Torres’ passion about the #FunnestSport

Why is Swimming the #FunnestSport?

  • Everyone participates is swimming, there are no benchwarmers (nor benches).
  • Swimming is a team sport – Only 16 percent of non-swimming parents view swimming as a team sport but parents of swimmers associate the sport with teamwork more than any other sport.
  • Suit up and go – Only a swimsuit, cap and goggles are necessary to get started.
  • Life skills – Swimming increases self-confidence, self-esteem, time management, goal-setting and social development.
  • Easy to learn sport.
  • Low risk of injury – No contact makes for a safer environment
  • Swimming = total body fitness – Burn 650 calories in an hour – more than walking, biking or team sports
  • Sport for life – Once you learn to swim, you can enjoy no matter your age
  • Swimming is FUN
