Did you know that 276 lost their lives to drowning in Australia last year?

As we head into warmer weather let’s work together to keep our children safe. Please make sure you actively supervise your children at the Centre. That means being in the water with them if they are under 5 or weak swimmers. For older children please watch them at all times and avoid distractions such as mobile phones.

Below are prevention strategies of drowning from Royal Life Saving:

  • Active supervision by parents or carers of children
  • Be aware of pre-existing medical conditions
    and physical limitations
  • Understand the possible adverse effects of
    medications
  • Follow safety rules displayed around the pool area
  • Follow directions issued by staff and lifeguards
  • Inform a lifeguard if a non-swimmer, or of any
    relevant medical conditions
  • Learn swimming and water safety skills (find out about our BlueFit Swimming program here)

You can see Royal Life Saving’s 10 Year Analysis on Drowning here for more information.

Sometimes people avoid swimming due to the colder weather approaching however there are many reasons why you should keep going!

If you have ever heard that swimming in winter makes you more prone to catching a cold, don’t believe it, it is only an old wives tale! Swimming during the winter time instead helps build a stronger immune system and makes you more resilient to stress and other illnesses.

If you still fear that it may affect your health here are some good habits to maintain:

  • Wearing a swimming cap during the lessons
  • Wearing warm clothing and footwear for after lessons
  • Wearing more coverage with bathers such as a rash vest
  • No other workout is low impact but achieves high results building muscles, burning calories and stimulating your brain. The great thing about swimming is that it’s for everyone! You can also swim in rain, hail or shine, unlike other sports which get called off in bad weather so it keeps your child active throughout the whole year.

Lastly, the best way for you to remember and keep developing skills is through repetition. If you take your children or yourself out for 3-4 months in winter, they may lose their technique and take longer to progress through the level or worse, forget important knowledge when they get back to swimming in public in the early days of spring and summer.

So even though winter is coming around remember to just keep swimming, just keep swimming, swimming, swimming!
