Message from the Manager May 23, 2012

Happy Summer SafeSplash Families and Friends!

With the outdoor pool and summer vacation just around the corner, I wanted to personally take a moment to express how important it is to get your little one’s swimming. So often during the summer time families take summer vacations all around the globe visiting lakes, water parks, neighborhood pools and everything in-between.  Have you ever considered the risk involved in the fun that you will have this summer?

According to the CDC two children under the age of 14 die each day due to unintentional drowning. Furthermore, it is the second leading cause of death for children under the age of 14; right behind car accidents. You buckle your kid up, take all the precautions to make sure they are safe in the car. Do you do the same when they are near the water?  Do you equally invest in their safety around the water? It’s just that important!

 Will your child be near the water this summer? If so, I reach out to you, don’t become the statistic this summer.  Invest in your child’s safety! No matter their age or current ability, it is never too late to invest in your child’s future.

 See you at the pool!
