Why Make a Splash?
70% of African American children cannot swim

40% of Caucasian children cannot swim
Ten people drown each day in the U.S

Why should your child learn to swim? Because learning to swim significantly reduce the risk of drowning. Whether or not you plan to head to the pool, water is all around us - in rivers, lakes, drainage ditches, even large puddles. Equip your child with this life skill and you'll also be giving him/her access to all the fun and fitness the water can provide!
- Learn to Swim!
- Follow pool rules.
- Never swim alone. Use the buddy system and choose locations with certified lifeguards whenever possible.
- If someone in the water is in trouble, reach, throw, but don’t go!
