    E115 - DROWNING PREVENTION WEEK: Royal Life Saving Society UK (RLSS UK)

    On this week's episode of the Propulsion Swimming Podcast, we are teaming up with the Royal Life Saving Society UK to bring awareness to Drowning Prevention Week.   

    Drowning Prevention Week (DPW) is one of the largest summer water safety campaign across the UK and Ireland and runs from the 18th June - 25. It's critical in raising awareness and encouraging the public to enjoy water safely.  

    On average 402 UK lives are lost to accidental drownings each year so the more awareness we can raise for this cause the better!

From a fellow swimmer...

This podcast really helped me keep that interest and mindset of swimming! As practices have been canceled for now due to COVID-19. I have been seeking motivation and I have found it in this podcast!
