Survival Week

Survival Week is one week every quarter where we focus on teaching survival skills in the water, should something happen outside of our lessons.

National Water Safety Month

Every May, the need for ongoing water safety education is highlighted during Water Safety Month. At British Swim School, every month is water safety month because unfortunately, drowning is the fifth leading cause of unintentional death in the United States.

Stay Safe on the Ice

Even strong swimmers can run into trouble if they fall in the ice. Enjoy the the winter season more by learning how to judge ice conditions and what to do in a case of an ice emergency.

October's Survival Week

Why teach kids to swim in their clothes for survival week? In one word: safety. As we teach students water survival techniques, one important lesson is learning to navigate the water while fully clothed.
