Saving lives

Our priority is water safety.  The first thing we instill in infants is the instinct to float on their backs. We teach toddlers to get to the edge of the pool. Why?  Because the Center for Disease Control and Prevention lists drowning as the leading cause of death among youth in United States.  We think this is because so many children have not been taught to swim, or else have been given a false sense of confidence even though they were poorly taught.
