Safe Water Sports new actions for 2022-2023

Safe Water Sports has created a unique swimming program for children to ensure the quality of learning at swimming pools through the enjoyment of the water, with the hope to increase water confidence and water safety awareness.

The swimming program is designed in cooperation with an expert group consisting of swimming instructors, Olympic winner athletes and the Association of Lifeguard Schools of Greece. Through the program, children learn about strokes and distances, basic safety rules in the aquatic environment and key lifesaving and water safety skills.

The program provides a series of certificates to children that consist of a progression of twelve stages. There are 4 series with 3 levels on each series: Orange Cap (for baby swimming), Purple Cap, Silver Cap & Gold cap that address to children of 3 up to 12 years old. Once children complete the Orange Cap series, they progress to the Purple Cap series etc. At the end, children receive a personalised full-colour A4 certificate upon completion of each stage. The qualification items for each stage can be found on the back of the certificate.

With this program, we have an opportunity to ensure every generation is taught basic water safety skills. But we have to work together to make it happen.

Additionally, on May 2022, Safe Water Sports created ''Oceal Lab'' a unique place where it welcomes students from primary schools on a daily basis in order to teach them about safety rules in the sea, in the swimming pool and in water sports through a series of interactive games. Each day the Organization welcomes more than 50-100 students!
