How well can you swim?

Did you know that only HALF of the people who say they know how to swim can perform basic safety skills

The American Red Cross created the first national water safety program in the U.S. – and today it’s still the gold standard for aquatics training. All of that training is making a difference. In the last century, we’ve helped to reduce accidental drownings by nearly 90% nationwide.

With summer just around the corner, it’s a great time to take perfect strokes in the right direction to stay safe in the water.

Make water safety a priority, maintain constant supervision, and prevent unsupervised access to the water – especially if you have little ones. You can also download the American Red Cross Swim App for some fun games to teach them water safety and keep your wee swimmer motivated. Now get out there and have a blast the safe way!
