Water Safety @ Home resources

In recent weeks, many in our industry have had to reclose their facilities and amend their operating schedules creating a trying time again for staff, members and patrons alike.

LSV have been working hard to support and advocate for the industry during these uncertain times. Simultaneously our teams have also been working on a range of initiatives to support the industry into the future.

Below is a summary of some Water Safety @ Home initiatives, which you can use to help support your members and families who currently participate in your swimming lesson programs. The aim of these resources is to provide you with an opportunity to keep your members engaged and active while they are not seeing you in person at the pool.
