"Swim Safety"
1/13/2024

According to the USA Swimming Foundation, 64% of African-American children and 45% of Hispanic children have little to no ability to swim, even though swim lessons can reduce the risk of drowning by 88%. Drownings continue to be the leading cause of death among young children, especially in pools. From 2018 to 2020, more than 1,100 kids, 15 years and younger, died from reported drownings.

Our young men received invaluable information and insight on the following: use of personal flotation devices; understanding water depths and never to swim alone; recognizing the signs of drowning; action steps if someone is drowning; floating techniques and buoyancy maneuvers; and the significance of remaining calm if you were to fall into the water.
