Seal Swim School teaches swimming, safety, and survival in all of our classes. Water Safety education is an integral part of our program.
The Ring of Safety is the concept we use at Seal Swim School to prepare and educate children and adults about being safer in and around the water. All pieces of the Ring work together to create the most effective level of protection around the water.
88% of children drown in the presence of an adult and 23% of childhood drownings happen during family gatherings near a pool. Active supervision can reduce this percentage. We suggest that you identify an adult “Water Watcher” every time you are around water with children.
Formal swimming lessons can reduce the risk of drowning by 88% for 1-4 year olds. A child is never too young (check out this video) or too old to learn water safety, survival, and swim skills.
