  • Learn, practice, and remember how to float.
  • Only swim in areas where there is a lifeguard or an adult watching.
  • Use the buddy system. Never swim alone.
  • Always obey the lifeguard and follow posted swimming rules.
  • No rough play or showing off.
  • If you hear thunder or see lightning, get out of the water.
