Waterworks Participates in a Nationwide Effort for Water Safety

March 28, 2011

I’m sure everyone has been the schemer or recipient of some fun April Fool’s Day prank on the first of April but have you ever heard of April Pools Day? April Pools Day is a new nationwide educational day to teach parents and children about pool and spa safety.

 In a continued effort to educate our families and little Waterworks swimmers on important water safety skills, Waterworks will be extending April Pools Day for the whole first week of April.  As part of your child’s regular lesson we will also teach one important water safety skill! Teachers will share this skill at the end of the lesson with parents so that kids and parents can talk about water safety at home.

There is a wealth of great information regarding safe pool and spa equipment, recalled products, educational tools for kids and more. To learn more about April Pools Day and to access the informational tools available to you click on http://www.poolsafely.gov/ . We are look forward to sharing this educational week with our Waterworks Families!


Cub Scouts Get Opportunity to Learn Important Advanced Swimming and Water Rescue Methods

March 18, 2011

Waterworks will be welcoming all Cub Scouts for an Aquanaut Badge session next Wednesday March 23rd from 6pm-7pm. Scouts will work on a variety of water safety and swim skills to earn their badge. Some of the skills covered will include learning the four basic water rescue methods, swimming required distances of several swim strokes, diving, floating and swimming with sharp turns in the water.

 Swimming goes beyond the basic pool, and these skills are important when swimming in more challenging environments such as an ocean or lake. We are excited to be able to share these important swimming skills and rescue methods that will help these boys be more competent in the water and as well as providing the knowledge needed for basic water safety.

 If you would like more information or would like to register please call us at 949-450-077. For more information on the skills covered you can click on http://meritbadge.org/wiki/index.php/Aquanaut
