AQUATICS
May is National Water Safety Month! Check our social media accounts for water safety information throughout the month.
Water Safety Tip #1: Make sure there is constant adult supervision and children are within arm’s reach at all times, even if children wear a life jacket or other
flotation device. 
Water Safety Tip #2: Home pools are the most commons sites for drowning among young children. Install a minimum of a 4-foot barrier around all water sources, including pool, spa and hot tubs.
