National Water Safety Month

Did you know May is National Water Safety Month? Not only can swimming be fun and competitive, it can also save a life! Drowning is the second leading cause of unintentional death in children 14&U. To reduce these numbers, in 2017, the USA Swimming Foundation provided swim lessons to 1 million children in the U.S! The USA Swimming Foundation has granted over $4.5 million to Make a Splash Local Partners for free or reduced-cost swim lessons!

How YOU can help!

1. Never swim alone or without adult supervision.

2. Learn CPR!

3. Protect your pool with fences and alarms.

4. Encourage every child to learn to swim!!

Registration for our own Southeastern Swim School is open for summer lessons! If you have friends, family, or neighbors with children 3 & up, encourage them to register today!

Earn some cash while helping prevent drowning! We are hiring lifeguards and instructors for the summer! Pay starts at $10/hour for individuals 15&up. If you’re interested, please contact Heather Streett at joinsoutheasternswimclub@gmail.com.

For children under 3, sign up for Infant Swimming Resource lessons with Coach Emily Schroeder! Infants and toddlers with learn the skills necessary to save themselves if they were to reach the water alone. And for the month of May, all siblings of SSC or Southeastern Swim School along with HSE teachers receive 30% off their lessons! Email Emily at e.schroeder@infantswim.com for more information!
