Buffalo City Swim Racers – 3rd Annual Water Safety Festival

Each year, Buffalo City Swim Racers (BCSR) hosts a water safety festival that is designed to get young people comfortable with their surrounding waters – pools, lakes, rivers, etc. This is such an important initiative, especially as Buffalo continues to make swimming opportunities available to its residents. Boating opportunities abound these days, with kayak launches found throughout the waterfront. Buffalo’s public pools are scheduled to open on July 1. That means that it’s time to empower children with the ability to swim.

As the only sport that can save lives, BCSR provides opportunity for competition and enables children with water safety skills that will last a lifetime.

On Saturday, June 25, BCSR will be hosting its third annual Water Safety Festival at City Honors School. The free safety instruction course is free and open to the public. This is an excellent opportunity to provide your child with life lessons that he or she will possess for a lifetime.

Fatal unintentional drowning rates of African-American children ages 5-14 is almost three times that of white children of similar age.

Starting at 11am on Saturday, children will learn the ropes of water safety. All families are welcome to attend. The City of Buffalo Fire Department will be on hand to discuss the importance of CPR. There’s a lot to learn, and the time is now. Teach your kids to be safe. Teach them to love and respect the water.
