SAFETY AROUND WATER WEEK SAW

HELP KEEP YOUR CHILDREN SAFE

Drowning can happen nearly anywhere with standing water. Equip your kids with the tools they need to be confident in and around water.

This 5-day course for ages 5 through 12 teaches children that water should be fun, not feared, as long as one know how to be safe in and around water. A sequenced set of skills is taught to reduce the risk of drowning and to boost confidence in and around water.

A typical session includes exercises to help children adjust to being in water. Instruction in “Jump, Push, Turn, Grab” and “Swim, Float, Swim,” two skill sets children can use if they unexpectedly find themselves in the water or an area they cannot touch bottom. Fun activities are used to reinforce skills.

Safety Around Water has been held for 2018. Check back in January for 2019 dates.
