A Reminder to Parents
It only takes 10 seconds for a child to drown. Never let your guard down!
Your child's safety is our top priority. Lifeguards are an important safety feature, but they are not intended to replace the close supervisions of parents or caregivers.
Build your child's water safety awareness with our Learn to Swim Program. We offer one-on-one private or semi-private lessons or summer group lessons. For more information contact us to schedule your session today (573) 339-6340.

Top 5 Water Safety Tips
1. Always swim with a friend.
2. Swim in designated areas supervised by a lifeguard.
3. Always stay within arm's reach of young children and avoid distractions. Children under 12 must be accompanied at all times by a responsible person 15 years or older. 
4. Protect yourself from the sun by wearing a hat, pool shoes and sunscreen. 
5. Feet first every time! Never dive into shallow water.
