During Safety Week, swimmers complete water safety skills with clothing over the suits for the first 10 minutes of their regular lesson. Swimmers complete jumps, floats, and short swims (older swimmers), all to simulate falling into a body of water with clothing on. Coaches assist swimmers when necessary, but swimmers are encouraged to complete the skills as independently as possible. After the first 10 minutes of the lesson, swimmers remove their extra clothing and complete the lesson in their swimsuits. While no swimmer is ever fully safe in the water, Safety week is a great measure of a child’s water safety skills.
