Building Life Skills
Life skills are abilities and behaviors that help people effectively deal with the events and challenges of everyday life, from interactions with others to identifying and processing emotions. ABS™Kids classes help kids develop life skills by:
Providing positive experiences that support healthy development
Training kids how to work towards a common goal
Encouraging effective communication with peers
Teaching youth how to play by the rules
SENSE OF PRIDE
Participating in ABS™Kids programming also helps build an inner sense of pride in self and community. As individuals conquer challenges, develop new skills, and achieve personal goals they gain confidence and are able to celebrate their accomplishments.
Aqua Body Strong can be used for a variety of activities, from kids classes and floating platforms for child and adult swim lessons to cross training tools for athletes, in-service and team building programs for lifeguards and other staff and summer camps.
