A KASS parent has shared a video of her son eating lettuce compared to participating in the KASS Survival and Learn to Swim program

I think it’s safe to say he prefers our lessons 🏊‍♂️ to eating vegies 🥦

ACCIDENTAL FALLS INTO WATER remain the leading activity prior to drowning among children under 5 years accounting for nearly 80% of drowning deaths in children.

Once the child has completed the KASS Survival program and is fully skilled, the child simulates an accidental fall into water. This allows the child to apply their newly learnt skills in a safe and controlled environment wearing full winter clothing including shoes and nappy. This is a vital step because it is a very different sensory experience swimming or floating in clothes. These aquatic incidents usually happen when the child has wandered to a body of water unnoticed and fully clothed. It is a crucial skill for the child to learn, so should they ever fall into water fully clothed, it won't be the first time they have performed this skill and hopefully prevent further tragedy and most importantly SURVIVE.

This is a learned behaviour we teach at Kids Aquatic Survival School.

To swim, roll to back, float, take a breath, roll back to front and swim. To continue the sequence of swimming and floating until the child reaches safety.

Because lifting a child's head up to breathe is much more difficult than to roll onto their back. Lifting a child's head changes their centre of buoyancy, bringing their legs down and can lead to the child reverting to a vertical position rather than horizontal. When a child is vertical in the water they struggle to maintain this position, because their head is proportionally bigger and heavier than their body.

Remain Horizontal, Roll to breathe and SURVIVE with @kidsaquaticsurvivalschool

I have 2 issues with these lessons....

1. Children grabbing hold of the instructor or the parent 's shirt in the water.

WHY? In most cases when a child drowns the parent is not in the water. Safety needs to be the pool edge or if that is too far to reach then a child needs to understand to roll over onto their back and breathe and maintain a breathing, floating posture until help arrives.

2. Using flotation aids before a child is competent in survival.
WHY? Children should NOT be focussing on stroke until they understand their own natural buoyancy and can independently float to gain a breath.

Because #drowning does not occur due to a lack of swimming skills. Drowning occurs when a person is unable to hold and maintain an effective body position for breathing.

Water confidence through competency is the best way

Look at this 2,5 years old little girl, Sienna! This is a perfect example of a water confidence child, why? Nice body balance control to float on her back, even holding a sinker and a toy! Super fast rotations to find the air to breath when need it and a good orientation to find a safe poolside to reach. Now is time to work on your kicking Sienna!🐬💙😊 #isacademy #happychildren #waterconfidence #babyswimming #swimfloatswim #waterbabies #kensingtonmums #maidavalemums #nottinghillmums #londonmums
