October Safety Day at
We believe safety around the water to be of the utmost importance. On Saturday October 27th Safety Day will include a presentation on the Safer 3 program prior to getting into the pool. Safer 3 is a national drowning prevention program that focuses on 3 layers of protection around the water.
Little Otter Swim School
After the presentation, parents and children will go into the pool area and we will talk about how to be safe around the water and what to do if you fall into the water with your clothes on. The children will then be asked to jump into the water one at a time fully clothed so that they can know what that feels like.
We will have a teacher in the water with them and a teacher on deck. One of the tough things with younger children is that they sometimes may not make the connection between what they do in swim lessons and what to do if they accidentally fall into the water. We hope that letting your child go into the water fully clothed in a controlled setting will give them the confidence should they ever fall into the water accidentally.
Safety day beings at 1:30PM and we are asking everyone to sign up for a specific time so that we can be efficient in our program. Call 704-846-7946 or stop by the customer service desk for your appointment.
