Vapping PSA

The topic of vapping has become a major challenge for many schools, both high school and middle, and since much our team is made up of kids in that age range I wanted to share some articles about the topic.  In schools the largest areas of concern seems to be bathrooms and locker rooms.  If your swimmer sees something suspicious please make sure they let both you and the coaching staff know.  The facilities we use are all tobacco free.  Educating your kids is a great deterrent.
