Swimming is great sport for kids in Arizona. All children love being in the pool; probably the only place where you can be comfortable outdoors during Arizona summer.
Your child can start as early as you like, though you have to be in the pool with him until he turns at least 2 (and at most pools it's 3 years old). Also, swimming is probably the only sport where children can actually learn some valuable skills even at this early age.
“Aquatic programs for infants and toddlers have not been shown to decrease the risk of drowning, and parents should not feel secure that their child is safe in water or safe from drowning after participating in such programs. Young children should receive constant, close supervision by an adult while in and around water”.
