PAJAMA WEEK – MONDAY 15.05.17 – SUNDAY 21.05.17

WHY DO WE DO PAJAMA WEEK

Falling into a pool of water with clothes on can produce fear and hysteria in an otherwise calm swimmer. We want all swimmers to know that although it may feel strange to swim with clothes on it is still something they can and should do when in the water.

Even if you don’t know any water safety skills yet, having this practice can help you react quicker and prevent panic until someone can come to your rescue. A little bit of time can make a big difference in an emergency situation.

HOW TO PREPARE FOR PAJAMA WEEK

  • Have your swimsuit under your pajamas. The first 15 minutes of the lessons will be in clothes and will be focused on safety skills
  • Bring and extra plastic bag to put wet clothes in after the lesson
  • The heavier the clothing, the more the swimmer will feel the weight of it (flannelette)
