Help us change these statistics

In the U.S. alone, 3 children die and 5 receive Emergency Care EVERY DAY!

It Can Happen To Anyone

70% of preschoolers who drown are in the care of ONE OR BOTH parents at the time of drowning.

Be Safe

Taking part in formal swimming lessons and water safety classes can reduce the risk of drowning by up to 88%.

Boys Are More At Risk

80% of all drowning victims are boys. African American and Hispanic nationality account for more than 3 times as many drowning incidents.

Always Be Vigilant

It's not a LACK in supervision, but a LAPSE in supervision that puts children at risk.

The Solution Is Education

And Multiple Layers Of Protection

There are many layers of protection needed to keep our little ones safe around water, and one of those layers of protection is to skill your child with the ability to rollback and float unassisted. The ability for them to turn their head, and float could mean the difference between life and death.
