Alumnos de la Escuela de Natación Casvi en el Torneo de Navidad Promesas de Móstoles

21 students of our Swimming School of Initiation to Competition have participated this weekend in their first championship of the season. The Christmas Trophy Promises ADN Móstoles. 

A tournament in which “everyone wins” and with which, in addition to celebrating the Fiestas, they want to promote this sport among children. But what is the purpose of the Swimming School and who can participate in it?


Swimming at Eurocolegio Casvi International Private School is included as an activity within the school day. It is compulsory from the first year of life until the last year of Primary School. And as voluntary in Secondary Education and Baccalaureate. In fact, we were pioneers with the inclusion of the practice of this sporting discipline in school hours from the first cycle of Infant Education.

It is also promoted as an extracurricular activity thanks to the School of Initiation to Competition, made up of pupils from 5 to 16 years old.

Thanks to this Swimming School, as well as perfecting their style in the water, they are offered the chance to have their first experiences in the competitive world.

Y es que la Natación ayuda a nuestros alumnos a desarrollarse físicamente en un medio diferente, utilizando todos los músculos de su cuerpo. Lo que la posiciona como uno de los deportes más completos.

The Sports Department of the International Private School Eurocolegio Casvi recommends learning this discipline because of the numerous benefits that swimming produces in children. Also from the Swimming School. These are the main benefits:

  1. It improves the psychomotor system. When swimming, you have to move arms and legs in such a way that both are coordinated.
  2. Perception of space. Having to stay in the lanes of the pool while swimming allows them to have a better perception of space while improving their balance.
  3. Increases their IQ. Babies who swim in their first three years of life have a greater perception of the world, which stimulates their minds and in the future they will be more creative and observant.
  4. Better health. Among the benefits of swimming is also the improvement of the cardiorespiratory system, as it strengthens the lungs and heart.
  5. Strengthens muscles. Swimming works a group of inner muscles that will become stronger and prevent injuries.
  6. Builds confidence. When children, from a young age, relate to water, they feel safe in this environment. This is why it is a good way of building self-confidence and self-esteem.
  7. Autonomy and independence. Children learn to move on their own in an unfamiliar environment.
  8. Relaxation. Swimming is an excellent exercise against stress and nervousness, not only because of the fatigue it generates but also because it provokes a sensation of peace and tranquillity like no other sport.
  9. Improved nutrition. Physical activity in the water increases appetite, so it is ideal for children who have trouble eating.
  10. They learn to socialise. This is the last of the benefits of swimming. As the classes are always in a group, they learn to be with other children and to work in teams when the exercises require it.
