See Live 5 WCSC

Swimming is a life-saving skill says James Island swim team coach Eddie Mason, who teaches kids as young as five.

“It keeps them from being afraid of the water as they get older, and we find that the kids who started at five are usually faster and better swimmers by the time they reach ten, 11, and 12.”
