Children's Water Safety Awareness provides the opportunity for children in our area to attend professional swimming lessons free of charge. All we ask is that parents take advantage of our free sign-ups at any of our functions, whether it be a fund raising event, a monthly meeting, or at a speaking event. Check our website for a schedule of these events, or simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
In the Summer of 2017, we partnered with multiple facilities in the Houma-Terrebonne area and were able to provide swimming lessons for over 35 children. We are actively looking to expand our efforts to include additional facilities in the area, as well as expanding to surrounding parishes and communities.
We also offer free CPR lessons to parents, grand-parents, and family members. Simply sign up at any of our events or meetings and we will schedule your free professional CPR classes.
Life Jacket Trade Up Program
Boating accidents are too common for comfort in our area, and regardless of how experienced your captain is, things can happen. Thats why we want to do our part to make sure that all children have the proper size life jacket available to them. An improper fitting or incorrect size life jacket is just as dangerous as not have any type of floation.
Our goal is to have our program available so that as your child out grows their current jacket, bring it to us and we can see to it that they get the proper fitting jacket for their size. We are still working on securing vendors as well as sponsors for this program, and are hoping to have it up and running by the Summer of 2018.
