This is a 5-session course that teaches kids water safety and basic swimming skills that help reduce the risk of drowning and builds confidence in and around water.
A typical session includes:
-Exercises to help kids adjust to being in water
-Instruction in “Jump, Push, Turn, Grab” and “Swim, Float, Swim,” two skill sets kids can use if they unexpectedly find themselves in the water
-Specific safety topics like what to do if you see someone in the water who needs help
-Fun activities that reinforce skills
Safety Around Water is free to participants. It is open to anyone in the community who wants their children to learn how to be safe in and around water.
