Swimming is a widely popular sport and activity with great health-related fitness benefits. Yet a significant percentage of children are unable to swim with any degree of skill, meaning not only are they missing out on health benefits, but they also are at risk when in water. Part of that risk comes from receiving either no instruction or no differentiated instruction. Children receiving swimming lessons are commonly grouped by age or grade and many lack the basic skills required for their age levels. Assessments and Activities for Teaching Swimming solves this problem by offering differentiated instruction for every participant in any class or programme, based on each participant's aquatic developmental level.
