Aquatics in the News
Listen to Elizabeth Beisel, 3 time Olympic Medalist, discuss the importance of wearing a coast guard approved life jacket and how to make sure that it fits properly (please note that life jackets are only 1 layer or protection. The first layer is to provide constant, direct, uninterrupted supervision at all times whenever anyone is in or near the water)
