They don’t have to win medals or awards and so they get to be in an environment where they’re comfortable and they feel good about themselves,” Girch said. And swimming can open a door to an active lifestyle one stroke at a time. Childhood obesity has more than doubled in children and tripled in adolescents in the past 30 years."
