Swimming Safely

While swimming is great exercise for both adults and youth, it’s important to keep safety a top priority so here are a few tips to help you make sure your summer is a happy and health one!

1.) Always supervise youth when they are in the pool. You may think that just because children and young adults know how to swim they are safe from the dangers of the pool, but it only takes one second for something to go wrong so always be on guard.

2.) Have a phone close by so you won’t have to run into the house when it rings and leave the pool unattended, and just in case an emergency occurs the phone will be available quickly.

3.) Childproof your pool to prevent accidents from happening. Kids are especially good at getting to things they want, so make sure the locks on gates and fences are child-proof.

Happy Swimming!!
