Lifeguard Olympics Cancelled
July 9, 2020
The Drowning Prevention of El Paso Christian Castle Lifeguard Olympics has been CANCELLED for the 2020 season.
THE SAFETY OF OUR COMMUNITY IS OUR UTMOST CONCERN. LET’S USE THIS STAY AT HOME TIME TO EDUCATE OUR FAMILIES ABOUT WATER SAFETY AND CORONAVIRUS SAFETY.
Water Safety is of utmost importance this year due to more families purchasing backyard pools. Drownings in homes have increased this year and Texas currently has had 45 fatal drownings. 9 Bath tub drownings and 21 pool drownings an increase over last year at this time. All of us need to be the lifeguard on duty when children are in and around the water. Drownings are quick, silent and a child can drown in as little as 2 inches of water. Here are some water safety tips
along with past Olympics photos and videos.
