SUMMER IS A GREAT TIME TO GET SWIM LESSONS 

PALM BEACH COUNTY, FL--The weather is heating up and for many Floridians this means it's time to cool off in the pool. While a day of playing in the pool can be fun, injuries and illnesses due to water-related activities increase during this time of year.

Waterproof Florida encourages layers of protection that include supervision, barriers and emergency preparedness. You can learn about the layers on the http://www.waterprooffl.com/ website.

In our community, swim lessons are a great way to begin water safety and are being offered by the following groups:

Palm Beach County Recreation
