Faulty pool gates account for 2 out of 3 drownings.

CHECK your pool gate and be compliant.
DON'T prop the pool gate open
ALWAYS actively supervise in and around water.
EQUIP your child/ren with aquatic SURVIVAL skills, not just water familiarisation.

It could mean to the difference between life or death.

An important story a mother has shared reliving the grief of her son’s drowning and providing a warning to all parents.

“It’s easy for parents to get a false sense of security. They take their child to swimming lessons in a warm pool, swimmers and goggles.”

“But often when it happens the child is clothed and not wearing goggles.”

9 month old Miya and 2 year old brother Kaylan floating side by side. All this learnt in just 5 weeks (25 lessons)

Parents want their children WATER SAFE not just water aware. When another child enters the family unit, the risk of distractions increases which can result in the most crucial barrier, supervision, failing. Nothing replaces active adult supervision or restricting access to water but we all know accidents happen. Teaching children under the age of 5 years aquatic SURVIVAL skills adds a third layer of defence. The more layers the better.

Swimming proves to be beneficial for mental health:

- Aid the body in removing excess fight-or-flight stress hormones
- Convert stress within the body into muscle relaxation
- Creation of new brain cells
- Increased blood flow to the brain which acts with endorphins as a mood booster
- Aided development of nerve fibers in the corpus callosum
- Increased cognition and learning capacity

In addition to the above mental health benefits there are also many physical health benefits

At 2.5 years of age Jaxon can
1. Dive for submerged objects
2. Independently recover to a float and breathe
3. Swim, roll over and float on his back to breathe and continue to swim to safety

He is equipped with life saving aquatic survival skills when most at risk of drowning.

Well done Kids Aquatic Survival School Hoppers Crossing and Jaxon

The ultimate aim of our intensive course is equipping children with the skills to independantly survive in the water. This may involve floating, swimming to the edge, or a combination of both if safety is further away. A skilled and independent child is one set up for a lifetime love and respect for water.
