drowning prevention week 2019

Drowning Prevention Week is the national campaign seeking to engage as many people as possible nationwide, in our water safety messages and drowning prevention work.

“One person drowns every 20 hours in the UK and hundreds more suffer life changing injuries through near drowning” say the RLSS UK for their renowned, annual national campaign, Drowning Prevention Week (DPW)".

It’s increasingly important for both children and adults to be able to swim at a high enough level that, should they ever be in a situation where their life is at risk in the water, they're able to take the appropriate action to stop themselves from drowning. Water safety is currently promoted on a national scale across schools, communities, leisure clubs and more – and here at swim! warrington... we want to help.

Learning to swim has many benefits; whether it be social, personal development or lifesaving –making it a valuable skill to have at any age.

Currently in the UK, only one in two children can swim by the time they go to secondary school. We’re here to change this! Olympic medallist and BBC Broadcaster Steve Parry, one of the biggest names in British swimming, is behind the creation of swim!

It is our mission to provide all our swimmers with the best and highest quality learn to swim experience in the country and that is why we have brought in some of the most experienced and respected coaches in child swimming to devise the programme for swim!
