Water Safety
& Education

Saf-T-Swim is dedicated to teaching water safety, so children can safely enjoy special moments in and around the water.

Why Water Safety Matters

At Saf-T-Swim, we go above and beyond to help young swimmers learn to love and respect the water. Learning to swim can be a fun and rewarding experience, but it can also teach life-saving skills. Sadly, drowning is still a leading cause of accidental death for children under the age of 5. For every child that dies from drowning, another five visit the emergency room for nonfatal submersion injuries.

Fortunately, there are ways to keep kids safer. The National Institute of Health (NIH) reports that learning to swim can help reduce a child’s risk of drowning by up to 88%. At Saf-T-Swim, we help children learn fundamental, life-saving swimming skills so they can safely enjoy the water. Our private lessons include one-on-one instruction from experienced instructors who provide personalized attention to every child. At Saf-T-Swim, water safety isn’t just something we teach, it’s what we’re all about!

Water Safety Education Outreach Programs

In addition to prioritizing water safety during swim lessons, Saf-T-Swim is proud to have developed our own water safety division called End Drowning Now. This important collaboration with partners ReesSpecht Life delivers an amazingly fun, interactive, and informative school show campaign "ReesSpecht The Water" which uses cartoon characters and 3D animation along with SPLASH, our Saf-T-Swim mascot, to educate the kids and raise awareness about water safety.

 As a proud member of the Long Island community, Saf-T-Swim strives to empower children with life-saving swim skills that allow them to make memories with friends and family in and around the water.
