Water Safety

Water Watcher. While wearing this tag, I agree to supervise the children in the open water pool, keeping them in sight at all times. I will not leave the water area without finding an adult to replace me.

Now that Summer is upon us, we know many of you and your families are spending time around water to stay cool. We have included some safety tips and reminders for you.

Swimming is a great recreational sport that can be enjoyed by people of all ages. But it’s important to know how to be safe while you’re in the water. The American Red Cross offers these important swimming safety tips you should be aware of before you head out to the pool, lake, or beach:

  • Swim in designated areas supervised by lifeguards or with a designated water watcher
  • Always swim with a buddy; do not allow anyone to swim alone.
  • Never leave a young child unattended near water and do not trust a child’s life to another child; teach children to always ask permission to go near water.
  • Have young children or inexperienced swimmers wear U.S. Coast Guard-approved life jackets around water, but do not rely on life jackets alone.
  • Maintain constant supervision.
  • Make sure everyone in your family learns to swim well. Enroll in age-appropriate Red Cross water orientation and learn-to-swim courses.
  • If you have a pool, secure it with appropriate barriers. Many children who drown in home pools were out of sight for less than five minutes and in the care of one or both parents at the time.
  • Avoid distractions when supervising children around water.
  • If a child is missing, check the water first. Seconds count in preventing death or disability.
  • Have appropriate equipment, such as reaching or throwing equipment, a cell phone, life jackets, and a first aid kit.
  • Know how and when to call 9-1-1 or the local emergency number.
  • Protect your skin. Limit the amount of direct sunlight you receive between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. and wear sunscreen with a protection factor of at least 15.
  • Drink plenty of water regularly, even if you’re not thirsty. Avoid drinks with alcohol or caffeine in them.
  • Enroll in Red Cross home pool safety, water safety, first aid and CPR/AED courses to learn how to prevent and respond to emergencies.

Here are some swimming safety tips from the Red Cross.

Graphic reads: Teach them early, teach children to get comfortable in the water and educate them early about water safety; active supervision, barriers and sight lines, always actively supervise children when they are both in and out of the water, ensure the pools are enclosed with appropriate barriers, and require children to swim in designated areas that are within sight lines of guardians and life guards; who's your buddy? Never let children swim alone, always designate swimming buddies before visiting the beach or pool; don't be pushy, instruct children to never run, push, or jump on others in and around the pool; wear sunscreen, protect your skin from sunburn and sunstroke by wearing sunscreen and hats, and sunglasses and limiting prolonged exposure to direct sunlight; suit up, make sure your children always use life jackets and use proper water safety and flotation devices; I'm on a boat, children should always wear a personal flotation device while on a boat, if it doesn't fit get one that does; stay hydrated, ensure that kids drink plenty of fluids to stay properly hydrated especially on hot days; get certified, become certified in infant and child First Aid and CPR.

With all of our gratitude and appreciation,

The Chuze Fitness Kids Club Team
