Drowning is the leading cause of unintentional death in children under the age of 5. And while it is preventable, many people do not actively invest in their child’s knowledge of and experience in water safety. Texas Swim Academy has joined the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission to take the Pool Safely ledge, and invites you take the pledge to help reduce childhood drownings, submersion injuries and entrapments.

The national Pool Safely educational campaign is based on four major principles:

  1.       Ensure that my children learn how to swim
  2.       As a parent or guardian, learn CPR
  3.       Designate a water watcher every single time children in my care are in or near the water
  4.       Ensure all permanent pools have a proper fence and gate, and safer drain covers

Since opening, Texas Swim Academy has been dedicated to setting a positive foundation toward a lifetime of participation in aquatic adventures. Children are only as safe around the water as their skills allow them to be, and we take pride in being a part of the Pool Safely campaign so we can help do our part in reducing the number of unnecessary childhood drownings.  

Join the 40,000 others throughout the United States who have taken the Pool Safely pledge, and visit poolsafely.gov for more information.
