There are tremendous benefits to individuals, families, and communities when adding a logrolling program to your facility. It can literally become the “talk of the town.” Because this sport is so unique and there are so few opportunities to take logrolling lessons, media attention will come quite quickly and create a buzz around town. An easy call to your local newspaper, radio, or TV stations can generate a lot of interest and publicity for your program. Your facility will also benefit from the new members gained by the logrolling program which in turn will generate more money for your facility.
The aquatics program will benefit directly by providing the opportunity to try something new, possibly giving it a jump start or a fresh look. Entire families can sign up together further enhancing the core values that many facilities were founded on. Parents are even known to bribe their kids by saying, “You can take logrolling classes but you also have to take swim lessons.” And what would a program be if it didn’t benefit the person taking the class. Logrolling benefits kids (and adults) in many ways. The most obvious is their balance. Kids are constantly balancing themselves on top of the log, trying not to fall off. In turn they are working on their fine and gross motor skills, athleticism, body awareness, agility, endurance, confidence, and concentration; all the while having fun and learning a new sport.
