AFTER SCHOOL AQUATICS ENRICHMENT
Our afterschool aquatics enrichment program is a vital opportunity for underserved children to learn about water safety and swimming skills. Did you know that according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), African American children are three times more likely to drown than their white peers? This statistic highlights the importance of providing access to swimming lessons and water safety education for all children, especially those from underrepresented communities.
In this program, children will have the chance to learn from experienced instructors in a safe and supportive environment. Participants will learn basic swimming strokes and techniques, as well as water safety skills that will help them to be more confident and comfortable in and around water. By building these skills, children will be better equipped to protect themselves and their peers from the dangers of drowning.
Beyond the physical skills of swimming, the program will also incorporate important information about water safety, including how to recognize and respond to potential hazards in and around water. Children will learn about the importance of wearing life jackets and other safety equipment, as well as how to perform basic rescue techniques.
This afterschool aquatics enrichment program is a valuable resource for underserved communities, providing access to life-saving skills and knowledge that can make a difference for children and families. By learning to swim and practicing water safety, children can gain confidence and take important steps towards a healthy and safe future.
