National Water Safety Month with Goldfish Swim

May is National Water Safety Month, and our household is ready! Between weekly lessons at Goldfish (check out my swim lesson review here) and practicing water safety while out on the boat, we are ready for a fun summer of swimming and water fun.

We received a special package from Goldfish Swim School this week, and Max was extremely excited to dig into it.

Here’s a clip of Max’s unboxing…

Here are some important water safety reminders:

  • Never let anyone swim alone. Even the most experienced people need a partner. 
  • Pool noodles, plastic inner tubes and pool toys, etc. will not protect against drowning. Make sure everyone needing a life jacket has a coast guard approved jacket and it properly fits. 
  • Make sure to have a ‘designated watcher’ while kids are swimming. The ‘designated watcher’ should be watching kids at all time – no cell phone distraction allowed!
  • Keep toys not in use away from the water so they don’t accidentally fall in.
  • This isn’t swimming specific, but if outdoors, wear sunscreen! Make sure to reapply after swimming. 
As I mentioned in my review, Goldfish Swim School has been amazing for my son. Not only do they teach a strict swimming curriculum, but I wish I would have started him sooner. We started lessons with Xavier (10.5 months old) and he’s having a blast. It makes me feel good that swim lessons is not only a fun activity/sport for my boys, but also something that is extremely important for them to learn and feel comfortable doing.

I’d love to hear any additional water safety tips you have in the comments below!
