Water Safety Resources

In conjunction with the MeowMeow Foundation, we have worked to provide you with tools and resources to help keep your children water safe.
We hope you go through the online workbook and spend some time as a family completing the activities. The workbook can be found here.
We hope you all sign the Drowning Prevention Pledge.
If you have photos of you or your family participating in water safety and would love to share, we’d love to see! #SwimSafer and #RBAC

Drowning Prevention Tips

Websites that provide drowning prevention guidance

At the RBAC, the health and safety of you and your learning swimmers are our priority. We hope you find these links and recommendations informational.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) studied drownings among children age 4 and under in Arizona, California, and Florida, where pools are especially common. It found that nearly 70% of the children were not expected to be at or in the pool, yet they were found in the water. In fact, 46% of the children were last seen in the house.
