Parents of children who are going to be in or around the water this summer now have an extra tool for pool safety. The Red Cross has a new swim app with kid-friendly features. Here are some of the highlights of the app and where you can click to download:
• Progress tracker for goals achieved in swimming lessons
• Stroke videos and performance charts to help with proper techniques
• “Help your Child Progress” activities that reinforce what is covered in lessonsDownload the app for free in the Apple
App Store, Google Play Store for Android or Amazon Kindle Store by searching
for American Red Cross or by going to redcross.org/mobileapps<http://www.redcross.org/mobileapps>.
The Swim App is not a substitute for learning how to swim. Parents can contact
their local pool, aquatic facility or park and recreation department and ask
for Red Cross swim lessons. Additional water safety tips are available at redcross.org/watersafety<http://www.redcross.org/watersafety>.
