    Swim Lessons

    Swimming is the only sport which can save your child’s life. According to the National Safe Kids Campaign, drowning is the second leading cause of unintentional injury-related death to children ages 14 and under, so it is absolutely crucial that all kids know how to swim at a young age. 

    Important Topic Areas

    • How to identify the hazards of aquatic environments and how to avoid them (the home, public swimming pools, the beach, rivers, lakes and dams etc) 
    • Various advisory signs they may come across in each environment and what they mean 
    • Important things to remember when participating in aquatic activities (swimming, boating, fishing etc) 
    • Key survival skills (safe entries/exits, floating, signalling for help) 

    Water Safety Education Prevents Drowning

    The primary aim of water-safety education is to prevent drowning, and it’s a vital part of any aquatics program. Children will ideally start their water safety education at home, but their knowledge should increase greatly when they start dedicated swimming lessons. Even basic water safety education can mean the difference between someone drowning or not.
