For Teachers

Water safety is more than just taking swimming lessons.

It’s about having SAFER behaviors around all kinds of water in order to prevent drowning. Since 2015, Water Safety with Colin & Friends has taught thousands of children about The Whole Hand Rules of Water safety. With the help of this evidence-based kids water safety program, Colin’s Hope aims to encourage a safer culture around water for kids and their families to prevent drowning.
