Summer in McKinney, Texas means it’s the perfect time to put on your suit and hit the pool in your backyard or one of the community pools you can enjoy as a Craig Ranch North resident. The temperatures of Texas in July should not be taken lightly nor should swimming pool rules, so help your family stay safe this summer. Here is an overview of the best swimming tips for your family.
Always Have Adult Supervision
Have you ever noticed how attentive lifeguards are when they scan the pool area? Much like the safety precautions they take, keeping your eyes on your kids is a must. Another great alternative is to make sure that there is adult supervision at all times. Never leave young children in a pool that is unattended by an adult.
Use the Buddy System
A great additional pool safety tip is to always use the buddy system. By encouraging your kids to swim with a partner, you can help them stay safe or call for help if anything unusual happens when they are in the pool and enjoy the summer sun together. After all, two is better than one, right?
Take Swimming Lessons
To ensure that your children are safe around the pool, it is a great idea to sign them up for swimming lessons. Not sure where to go? The City of McKinney Swim School offers a program suited for all ages. When children become familiar with an activity such as swimming, it not only is fun but also allows your children to learn something new on their own. With proper instruction, children will be aware of pool safety and perhaps teach others their skills!
