71% of the World is Water.
Children Are 100% Curious.

Teaching children how to be safe around water is not a luxury; it is a necessity.

Drowning can happen nearly anywhere with standing water. But, as a parent or caregiver, you can’t keep your children sidelined. You need to equip them with the tools they need to be confident in and around water so they don’t lose out on the health benefits of exercise, the opportunities to bond with family and friends and the sense of accomplishment when they learn new skills.


Be water ready. Learn about safety around water. 9 in 10 parents see swimming as an essential life skill, but 24% have low confidence in their kids' ability to stay safe in the water.
