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.
Swimming and other water-related activities are excellent ways to get the physical activity and health benefits needed for a healthy life. CDC’s Healthy Swimming website provides information for all groups of individuals involved in a healthy and safe swimming experience about how to maximize the health benefits of swimming while minimizing the risk of illness and injury.
