Swimways National Learn to Swim Day

**As a Swimways Swim Steps Ambassador, I was asked to help spread the word about National Learn to Swim Day. All opinions are my own.

As many of you may remember reading, I was asked to be a Swimways Swim Steps Ambassador and can't wait to continue to share more info about their products and our experience with them over the coming summer months! 
For those who aren't familiar with Swimways, they have been the leading manufacturer of pool toys, games and floats for over 40 years! They have introduced the Swim Steps program as a way for parents to teach their children one of life's most important skills - how to swim. Through an easy to follow, three stage program, SwimSteps products help children develop swimming skills and gain confidence in the water.

I am thrilled to be working with them and excited to share information with you about their second annual National Learn to Swim Day. Swimways started National Learn to Swim Day in 2012 with the goal of educating families about the importance and benefits of learning to swim before Memorial Day Weekend and the start of the summer.
Saturday, May 18th, Swimways encourages families around the country to participate in National Learn to Swim Day by signing children up for swimming lessons, hosting a National learn to Swim Day event or committing to learning to swim this summer.

With National Learn to Swim Day just around the corner, I've already started thinking about how my family and I will spend this important day. It's finally beginning to warm up here in the Midwest, and if the rain holds off we're thinking about setting up our pool. We are committed to helping teach our two older children how to swim this summer, and get our youngest more comfortable in the water. What better time to start than National Learn to Swim Day!?!

All summer long, Swimways will be working with Mario Vittone, former Coast Guard Helicopter Rescue Swimmer and instructor and water safety expert, to bring expert water safety tips to Swim Steps’ dedicated website TeachMeToSwim.com. In additional to these tips, families can download free materials and resources on the site, including a swimming certficate, National Learn to Swim Day party invites, coloring sheets and more!

You can learn more about SwimWays and their Swim Steps products on their website, here. Also be sure to connect with them on Facebook and Twitter as well!

    I was a lifeguard when I was in high school - I love the idea of National Swim Day! It is scary how many parents don't take the time to teach their kids swimming basics. It only takes a second for a child to slip in a pool ...
