Stop Drowning Now
Njswim is a proud partner of STOP DROWNING NOW, a global non-profit 501(c) (3) organization with a mission to save lives through water safety education. The mission is brought to life with the SAFER 3 curriculum.
The Stop Drowning Now organization aims to reduce the number of drowning incidents around the world through an ongoing year-round educational campaign.
Njswim also began visiting schools in New Jersey years ago to present the Safer 3 water safety curriculum in classrooms and at a variety of community events. They are currently creating the curriculum and piloting water safety programs to be taught at schools across the state.
The Sad Statistics About Drowning
Njswim has been playing an active role in the efforts to provide instruction on water safety as part of New Jersey Student Learning Standards for Comprehensive Health and Physical Education.
At Njswim, we feel that water safety education is an absolute priority. Drowning is preventable if the right resources are provided to reduce the risks.
The Safer 3 Water Safety Curriculum
The Stop Drowning Now Water Safety Curriculum is specifically designed for young kids’ learning needs. Kids learn to recognize various drowning risks and ways to protect themselves and other people in and around water.
They also learn preventative measures and how to respond in an emergency.
