Summer Swim Safety Tips

posted in: Little Flippers News | 0

At Little Flippers Swim School, we focus on swim safety year round. Swim safety has been our company’s foundation and remains a very important part of each and every lesson plan we create.

During the summer months, we especially like to share our knowledge and increase public awareness of the importance of safety in and around the water.

  1. NEVER LEAVE A CHILD UNATTENDED IN OR AROUND WATER
  2. ENSURE YOUR CHILD IS LEARNING HOW TO SWIM SAFELY
  3. INSTALL PROPER BARRIERS, ALARMS & COVERS ON YOUR BACKYARD POOL OR SPA
  4. ENSURE ALL PUBLIC/HOTEL POOLS YOU VISIT HAVE COMPLIANT DRAIN COVERS
  5. KNOW HOW TO PERFORM CPR

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) acknowledges the tremendous value of early swim education and its role in preventing drowning and recommends formal swim lessons for children under the age of 4.

In a recent blog post, we shared that the AAP published updated recommendations on water safety and drowning prevention. Their research and findings are aimed to bring to light one of the leading causes of death among children and to ensure both parents and physicians are aware and informed.
