#SwimTip
Make sure your children stay hydrated.

You may be in the water, but you also need to drink plenty of water when out in the sun. Stick with water, juices and soda are loaded with sugar which tend to be even more dehydrating in the sun.

#SwimTip - TAKE FREQUENT BREAKS

Your children may not appear to be tired, but it’s hot in the sun and swimming is physically tiring.

A good rule of thumb is that lifeguards at most pools call adult swim every hour for 15 minutes.  

If you do not have a lifeguard at your pool, make you children take a break at least every 30 minutes; which would be a good time to reapply sun screen and to have something to drink.

Even children that #swim well need constant supervision in and around the water.

All adults that are on “pool duty” should know how to swim and know CPR.  You should rotate “pool duty” every 15 minutes and make sure the adult on duty knows it’s their turn.

Never assume someone else is watching the kids!

Saturday Swim Tip:

Make sure that you cover your child in a good waterproof #sunscreen that blocks UVA and UVB rays.

Remember that it takes between 10 to 30 minutes for the sunscreen to absorb and activate once it hits the skin, so apply the first layer before leaving the house. Use a UV long-sleeved sun shirt to ensure that your little ones don’t get sunburn.
