Getting Back in the Pool Webinar
February 4 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The webinar will be held on Thursday, February 4, 2021, at 4 PM ET.
For many of our youth, aquatics-based activities are essential to their physical and mental health. COVID-19 stressors, such as stay-at-home orders and school closures, have caused significantly
higher rates of suicide-related behaviors and led to an increase in childhood
obesity rates as children have lost access to organized physical activity. Aerobic
activity like swimming provides an outlet for them to alleviate symptoms of depression and anxiety and also provides a safer, controlled environment in which to stay physically fit.
Unfortunately, many swimmers are still barred from accessing their local pools and we need action now.
I hope that you will consider attending this event to learn more about the aquatics community’s commitment to safety and our efforts to get youth swimmers back in the pool while mitigating the risk of COVID-19
