Third Annual National Learn to Swim Day

Third Annual National Learn to Swim Day

A while back I mentioned the increase in opportunities I've received in the past few months. One of those amazing opportunities was an invitation to be a SwimWays Swim Steps Ambassador. As you can imagine both Little J and I are very excited. Our family has been a long-time supporter of SwimWays and believe very strongly in encouraging children to learn to swim at a young age.

With Memorial Day and plenty of trips to the pool in the near future, we are working to ensure that Little J knows how to swim this year. According to the American Red Cross, drowning is the second-leading cause of unintentional injury-related death for children ages one to 14. As a parent, that number is terrifying.

Today, however, we are hoping to unite and decrease that number--in a big way. Today marks the Third Annual National Learn to Swim Day and I'm asking you to get out and participate by taking the time to introduce your little ones to the water.

As a trusted teach-me-to-swim resource for more than 40 years, SwimWays knows how important these first small splashes can be – and how quickly they can turn into perfect strokes, dives and cannonballs. So if you're not sure where to start, be sure to stop by their site and check out some of the amazing products they offer. Here's a quick peek at some of their swim products:

For the next few months, I'll be sharing tips, advice and news on Swim Ways products with you guys. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. Remember, we're all in this together! Now get out there and have a "water-ful" day!

Note: I was given products for this post, however, all thoughts and opinions are mine alone. As you can see in the first image, my family has long supported Swim Ways. 


  1. You're SO right! Learning to swim is SOOO important for kids! You would not believe how many members of my family (who all grew up in Haiti/Trinidad, an island), can't swim! It's ridiculous!

  2. I've been surprised at how many of my friends have reached adulthood and don't know how to swim and are scared to be on a boat because of that. It's such a good skill to learn at a young age!
