Swimming is a sport for life
In Australia, the allure of open water surrounds us, from backyard swimming pools to picturesque lakes, rivers, and dams. With our coastal proximity, many families spend their holidays immersed in beachside bliss or enjoying the refreshing embrace of a pool. Water-based activities account for nearly one-third of our recreational pursuits.
Regrettably, we have witnessed a significant number of drownings among children and adults in backyard pools, rivers, lakes, and beaches. Drowning remains one of the leading causes of accidental death among children, making swimming an essential life-saving skill.
It is crucial that we equip our children with the ability to swim and the knowledge to navigate perilous situations. Regardless of their current interest in water activities, all children should be aware of the benefits and joy that come from engaging with water safely and responsibly.
It is crucial for all children, regardless of their current interest in water activities, to understand the benefits and enjoyment that can be derived from engaging with water in a safe and healthy manner. Ensuring that children are able to swim and be safe in, on, or around water becomes a significant responsibility. By prioritising their swimming skills and fostering water safety awareness, we empower children to embrace water activities while minimising potential risks.
Remember, you can’t always be there. Learning to swim may save your child’s life one day.
