Basic Swim Safety

Jun 06th 6:45 pm - 7:15 pm

Do you know how to swim? Are you comfortable in the water? If you fell in, would you know what to do? In 2014, the American Red Cross completed a survey finding that 80 percent of Americans said they could swim but only 56 percent of the self-described swimmers can perform all five of the basic skills that might help to save their life in the water.  

Swimmers will learn the following critical water safety skills:

  • step or jump into the water over your head
  • return to the surface and float or tread water for one minute
  • turn around in a full circle and find an exit
  • swim 25 yards to the exit
  • exit from the water (if in a pool, exit without ladder)
