Once every Trimester is Water Safety Week, in which we teach water safety and rescue skills to all students. Skills include jumping in the water with clothes on and getting out unassisted, reach-and-throw don’t go, floats in all positions and a review of all water safety rules and emergency number 911. Safety for our Participants and our instructors is our #1 priority. We emphasize safety in all aspects of our program. Our program has had a great deal of positive feedback from parents regarding the skills which were learned and subsequently put to use in emergency situations.
Drowning is the #1 cause of childhood accidental death under the age of 5 years old in the Western States. We strive to help drastically reduce these horrible statistics.
Weekly visits to the pool will instill respect and safety skills when they are in or around any body of water and add to the Layers of Protection against drownings.
Mandatory Safety Tips
– Use these “Layers of Protection” to insure drowning prevention.
1. CONTINUOUS SUPERVISION – Never leave your child unattended around any body of water for any reason – this is the BEST way to prevent drownings.
Remember, the only 100% preventative measure against a childhood drowning is the constant visual supervision from a qualified adult.
Swim Lessons for Children are crucial!
