Pool Rules & Safety Guidelines
Drowning is not the violent, splashing call for help that most people expect.
Drowning is almost always a deceptively quiet event. The waving, splashing, and yelling that television prepares us to look for is rarely seen in real life. In 10 percent of drownings, adults are nearby but have no idea the victim is dying. Here’s what to look for: Drowning Doesn’t Look Like Drowning.
View the Pool Safety Rules & Guidelines.
Swim lessons for all skill levels are available throughout the season for ages 3 (by January 1 of current year) and up.
