Let’s all make water safety a priority, from Kirsten Port
As part of a Phys Ed. class project in my school, Lincoln High School, we are asking swimming clubs to help us raise awareness about the importance of water safety and swim skills. We would like to better educate and ensure that children and families have the tools to be safe in and around water. So, could I ask that you post safety resources on your website or social media? A good one I found that I think beginners especially may find helpful is https://www.dietspotlight.com/
