Pool Safety 101
With school out and the summer heat in full swing, it’s no secret that families everywhere are looking for a fun place to spend the day cooling down. With pool safety being top of mind for parents, it’s important to visit a facility that’s trusted in the community and is equally committed to keeping your children’s safety a top priority.
Here are some quick pool safety tips brought to you by Renaissance Club Sport Aliso Viejo
Implement a ‘Safety Break’
Kids can play in the pool for hours on end, which can cause them to become very fatigued. For this reason, experts recommend giving any children under 12 years of age a 10-minute break every hour on the hour. These breaks are a perfect opportunity for children to use the restroom, reapply sunscreen, hydrate, fuel up, and recollect their strength in preparation for re-entry into the pool.
Invest in Swim Lessons
According to the CDC, children ages 1 to 4 have the highest drowning rates. If your child could use a bit of instruction in the water, the summer is the perfect time to have a professional train them to become accomplished, technically-sound swimmers. By making this investment, it will give your child the tools needed to be a strong swimmer and allow parents an extra piece of mind while at the pool.
Make a Day at the Pool Fun
By creating engaging activities for kids to participate in while they’re in the pool, it makes swimming a fun and rewarding experience. Various activities like diving and racing allow children to build on their skills, which ultimately creates a safer experience for everyone involved.
So whether you’re looking to enroll your child in a swim class, enjoy a relaxing day poolside, or socialize, the pool season has a bit of everything you are looking for this summer. It is important to find a facility that is committed to the safety and enjoyment of all of its patrons and offers all of these amenities and more.
