Did you know that 276 lost their lives to drowning in Australia last year?

As we head into warmer weather let’s work together to keep our children safe. Please make sure you actively supervise your children at the Centre. That means being in the water with them if they are under 5 or weak swimmers. For older children please watch them at all times and avoid distractions such as mobile phones.

Below are prevention strategies of drowning from Royal Life Saving:

  • Active supervision by parents or carers of children
  • Be aware of pre-existing medical conditions
    and physical limitations
  • Understand the possible adverse effects of
    medications
  • Follow safety rules displayed around the pool area
  • Follow directions issued by staff and lifeguards
  • Inform a lifeguard if a non-swimmer, or of any
    relevant medical conditions
  • Learn swimming and water safety skills (find out about our BlueFit Swimming program here)

You can see Royal Life Saving’s 10 Year Analysis on Drowning here for more information.

With the warmer weather on its way, it’s important to remind parents how learning to swim is a life skill as drowning is one of the leading causes of death in children aged 0-4yrs old.

Choosing the right swim school for your child is as important as learning how to swim, not only does it provide great health benefits but it equips children with a skill for life! It increases children’s knowledge and skills for water safety and allows them to enjoy swimming safely.

BlueFit Swimming offers an industry-leading learn to swim program for babies through to adults. Enrol now in our program and ensure your child is swim-ready for Summer

With the winter season upon us, it becomes a little more difficult to get out of the house. However, swimming is a sport you can do all year round, and everyone can participate, especially when we have a heated indoor pool!

Here are some reasons why:

1. Swimming is one of the few sports you can do throughout your lifetime.

2. It does not require lots of special equipment and gear. All you really need is a swimsuit.

3. It creates a reason to get together— a good way to socialise with your family.

4. Did you know that swimming can boost your immune system? When cells in the body regularly get blood and oxygen, they function better

So what are you waiting for, grab your togs and let’s go!
