We intend to raise awareness that swimming is a lifesaving skill to the individual and to those around them in their care. We are here to help the Caregivers of Cayman.
(CMR) Sky Blue Aquatics is offering free swimming assessments for any caregivers that wish to confirm their level of confidence and swimming ability in the water. The program went live on Sunday and is sure to be popular on an island where most enjoy the water.
‘Swim for Sheillah’ is a fundraising initiative in honor of a Cayman nanny who tragically lost her life in a drowning incident in June. Sky Blue Aquatics has a goal of ensuring all caregivers and those around them have an independent assessment of their swimming ability and general knowledge of water safety.
They shared that they are sponsoring this FREE nanny/caregiver swim assessment program to conduct one on one evaluations and educate the general public by raising general awareness. The comprehensive three-page assessment that will include swimming ability, self-rescue, and water safety tasks.
“Awareness is key – through donations, this program has been created to ensure EVERYONE gets access to FREE swimming assessments. If we know you can’t swim and are a caregiver, we will do EVERYTHING we can to ensure you have access to swimming lessons.”
Interested persons do not need to have access to a poo. In fact, some clients have volunteered their pools to be used as well as other pools are available such as the Lions Pool or at Fitness Connection. Registration is required.
In an effort to make this offering successful Sky Blue Aquatics is accepting donations via Bank of Butterfield. Donations will go strictly towards the cost of the instructor’s time. Sky Blue Aquatics will be not be receiving profits from this program.
