Water Safety: A Year-Round Concern
Shannon McNeese   Jan 08, 2020 Admin

 

With Old Man Winter nipping at our nose and toes, the thought of putting on a swimsuit may seem unseasonal, unappealing, and “un-warm.” However, water safety knows no season. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, “Every day, about ten people die from unintentional drowning. Of these, two are children aged 14 or younger. Drowning ranks fifth among the leading causes of unintentional injury death in the United States.”

 

Though these statics sound scary, our job at The Swim School of Marietta is not to scare you, but to teach you and your child water safety and swim skills! Because your child will best retain information on a year-round schedule, we offer small class size, year-round lessons in our indoor heated pool. And don’t think swim lessons are just for the young! The professionals at The Swim School of Marietta offer swim lessons beginning at 2 months old to 99+ years old.     

 

With so many lakes, pools, water parks, oh…and that amazing thing called the ocean, we truly love the water and think you will too! Learn more about the swim classes we offer or stop by The Dive Shop to speak with one of our knowledgeable professionals. We look forward to keeping you and your family water-safe all year long!
