For Swim Instructors

SAFER behaviors around all kinds of water (like learning to swim and waiting for a grown up) are crucial in helping to prevent childhood 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 program, Colin’s Hope aims to encourage a safer culture around all kinds of water for families and their children.
