Summer is here!
Adopting critical water safety steps can ensure that a great afternoon at the pool doesn’t turn into a tragic one. Keep in mind these tips while using the facilities this season:
Keep children under active supervision at all times! Stay in arm’s reach of young kids. Des-ignate a responsible person to watch the water when people are in the pool—never al-low anyone to swim alone.
Walk at all times! Pools are intended for fun and recreation, but they can also be hazard-ous play areas when walking surfaces become wet or the pool is left unsupervised. Walk-ing will ensure no scrapped knees
Stay hydrated! Just playing in the pool – is a strenuous activity, and like most sports, working out in the pool causes the body to lose fluids through sweat. Drinking 3-8 ounc-es of water every 20 minutes will ensure your child is hydrated and ready to continue the fun activities the pool brings.
Protect your skin. Limit the amount of direct sunlight you receive between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. and wear sunscreen with a protection factor of at least 15 SPF.
Please remember the pool monitors are on deck to ensure safety & enforce association rules.
