Diving is a great exercise for your child because it is fun. Any exercise that involves a change in venue and activity is fun and exciting. Water, bouncing and jumping is going to provide fun exercise for your kids. These activities keep them moving, swimming, jumping and especially climbing out of the pool. The upper body strength required to get of the pool – usually with no ladders – is extraordinary. The combination of bouncing and jumping on the boards as well as getting out of the pool dozens of times each practice is a full body workout that divers love to do.
