Lesson Trends for a pandemic

Smaller groups. Swim teachers doing private lessons while on deck. Parents and guardians working in the water with their own children with the teacher in a remote position.

 A majority of the water-related deaths are children belonging to minority and low income populations, traditionally underserved in the aquatics community. (See more at the diversity page.)

Get Your Feet Wet - Swimming, is an online resource that can be deployed in camps, lesson programs and in your community.
