Swimming Lessons: Empower Kids in Water!

It's your job to make sure your kids are safe in the water. Make it happen!

It’s NEVER too young to start swim lessons. In a 2019 statement, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommended parents start swimming lessons for their children beginning at age 1.
   “Drowning is the single leading cause of injury-related death among children ages 1 to 4,” says Sarah Denny, M.D., F.A.A.P., lead author of the AAP policy statement, “Prevention of Drowning” published online in Pediatrics.
    Locally, here’s where to get your children lessons:
