Before you dive in:
Make sure you know how to swim.
Choose a safe environment.
Warm up and stretch your muscles and joints before entering the water.
Have plenty of fluids on hand and drink regularly.
Don’t overdo it if you’re just starting out.
See your doctor if you haven’t exercised for a long time.
Water safety begins with you. Be within arm’s reach from your coach
Regardless of swimming ability no person is drown proof. Ensure that there is adequate supervision AT ALL TIMES.
Water’s everywhere and it’s not always clear, clean and heated. Learn water safety knowledge and personal survival skills for the beach, river, lake and even your pool at home.
