May is National Water Safety Awareness Month and I’m proud to say that both Emma and Owen have been learning SO MUCH in their swim lessons! 💙
They are both all up to speed on their swim skills thanks to their amazing swim teachers.
Swim lessons are the best way to ensure you and your family stays safe and has the most fun while in the water! 💦
Having a pool in our backyard, Water Safety is HUGE for us and I am so happy to be spreading awareness! 💙
Check out Goldfish’s W.A.T.E.R Safety Tips:
W. “Wear a life jacket” – Realize that floaties, noodles and plastic inner tubes do NOT protect against drowning. They are created as water toys, not life-saving devices. U.S. Coast Guard approved life jackets can be worn while swimming or boating to keep you safe.
A. Act.”Throw but don’t go!” – If you see someone in trouble in the water, throw an item for them to grab onto but NEVER jump in yourself — you could be putting both of you in danger!
T. Take Swim Lessons. – Swim lessons are the best way to ensure you and your family stays safe and has the most fun while in the water.
E. Educate. – Key to swim safety is knowing essential skills like treading water and rolling over to float and catch a breath. With education about swim safety, you’ll be prepared if something unexpected happens.
R. Follow the Rules. – Pay attention to posted rules and signage — listen to lifeguards, parents, coaches — the rules, and adults in charge are there to keep everyone safe!
I hope you will join us in spreading awareness to something so important!
