The skills to survive in the water, uuummm
If you are not sure then you need to answer the following questions. If you cannot confidently say yes to all of them then it is time to step up your water game!
Step or jump into the water over their head
Return to the surface and float or tread water for one minute
Turn around in a full circle and find an exit
Swim 25 yards to the exit without stopping
Exit from the water. If in a pool, be able to exit without using the ladder.
Were you able to say yes to all five? What about your kids and loved one? If you answered no or were unsure about any of them then it is time for H2O&U swim lessons.
