Nine people drown every day in the U.S. and First Colony Swim Team wants to change that statistic by raising awareness of the importance of water safety this summer.
All Sugar Land and Missouri City-area families are encouraged to attend Make a Splash Water Safety Day on Saturday, April 27 from 1:00-5:00 PM at The Settler’s Park Pool at 3010 Settler’s Way Blvd, Sugar Land.
The event will feature water safety stations including: diving safety, slide safety, mini-swim lessons and water rescue techniques. The Fort Bend County Police and Fire Departments will also be in attendance with car safety, fire safety and other children’s safety information.
Plus, families will be able to get information about free and reduced price swim lessons. First Colony Swim team will offer these lessons, on a limited basis, to families who participate in the free and reduced lunch program at the public schools.
