SPLASH

Navy Fitness Drowning Prevention Campaign
Through SPLASH, Navy Fitness strives to educate parents and youth on pool safety and the dangers associated with unsupervised swimming.

Keep Your Child Safe at the Aquatics Facility with Six Key Tips:
Stay within arm’s reach. Drownings can occur quickly and quietly, and in as little as 1 inch of water.
Protect your non-swimmers. Water wings and other inflatable floats are not allowed in Navy MWR Aquatics facilities.
Learn to swim. Navy MWR offers swim lessons for all ages.
Assess swim skills. Lifeguards are available to provide the official Navy Swim Test.
Swim safely. Youth non-swimmers and swimmers must remain in their designated areas at all times.
Hang it up. No tweet, status update text, or phone call is worth risking a child’s life.
Make a SPLASH in swim safety!
