Swim Club Gives Safety Tips to Parents

LOVES PARK (WIFR) -- A potential life-saving swimming event took place Saturday that wasn't just for swimmers, but for parents as well.

The Dolphin Swim Club of Loves Park held a free event called the "Safety Showcase".

Today, the program had an emphasis on how to prevent dangerous incidents from happening around water and how to react if it did.

When it comes to parents and kids, it's very important that they get a good education on water safety.

"That's why we put this on to provide an education for parents and for kids so that they can be safer around water," said Operations Manager Ryan Reinecke. "Water should be enjoyable. It shouldn't be something you have to worry about. You should always be cautious, but you should be able to enjoy it and have fun and not have negative memories associated with it."

The Dolphin Swim Club provides swim lessons for babies as young as four months old all the way up to adults.
