With it being water safety awareness month, I’m missing our Goldfish swim lessons even more than normal! We’ve been a #goldfishpartner for a little over a year now and absolutely love, love, love their facility! The staff is so kind and the classes are so well run & organized.
Water Safety Awareness Month at Home
Kids are home and swim lessons temporarily on hold. So, water safety awareness is even more important! It’s a scary stat, but more than 70% of childhood drowning occurs at home. Goldfish created Goldfish at Home with free, virtual dry-land swim lessons. They are available to families across Chicagoland along with a variety of online and interactive water-safety focused initiatives and activities.
Activities at Home: Recess with Ryan
Every Monday at 3 p.m. ET, three-time Olympic Swimming Gold Medalist Ryan Murphy is hosting an interactive social media series via Facebook Live. Kids can participate in a water safety exercise challenge. Murphy provides inspiration, answers real-time questions, and virtually interacts with families across the nation. Those who participate and complete the exercise challenge are entered to win prizes from Goldfish Swim School, the USA Swimming Foundation, and more!
Keeping kids safe is a number one priority while we have fun at home this summer. We miss Goldfish, but I’m so grateful they’re providing tips while we’re home. Hopefully, we can return to swim lessons soon. In the meantime, we’ll stay safe at home and have fun in our new backyard. By the way, did you see our affordable backyard design yet? I’m sooo excited about it. I’ll be entertaining all summer – even if it’s just us!
