FATHER’S DAY

June 15, 2013 in Family Fun, For Coaches & Parents, Las Vegas Local, Lifeguard, Product Spotlights, Swimming, Triathlon

Sunday is Father’s Day and with it comes the opportunity to enjoy quality water time with dear old Dad.  If it’s a backyard pool party, there are a number of ways to enhance your aquatic experience this Father’s Day.  A backyard pool party for the family and friends will take on another dimension with the inclusion of toys and pool games for the festivities.  Grab a snorkel and mask set and set up a scavenger hunt using dive rings and pool toys.  For a combination of games, look to the Across Pool Volleyball/Badminton Set from Water Gear.  This set includes the standards, net, ball, rackets and birdies for guaranteed hours of pool fun.  If basketball is your game, add another dimension and play a championship series of your own with the Heavy Duty Water Basketball Game, also from Water Gear.  Team or one-on-one competitions will keep everyone involved, and it may give Dad a reason, or the perfect excuse, to officiate the action.

Perhaps Dad just wants to kick back and relax this Father’s Day.  Maybe he just wants to sit back and enjoy watching it all.  If that’s the case, let him lounge in style and watch all the competition with a quality flotation device.  Keep beverages at the ready and share some floating time with Dad on the River Run II from Wet Products.  This dual tube design features seating for two, two cup holders, two handles (for the rogue wave) and showcases a cooler in the middle that keeps beverages cold and ready.  Wet Products also offers the 18 Pocket Suntanner.  This raft is over 6 feet long, 2 feet wide and includes a pillow for Dad to rest his weary head on.  However, Dad may need to load up on the sunscreen in case the competition is so riveting he happens to doze off for a few minutes on this floating nap vessel.

Remember, whatever activities you have planned this Father’s Day, it’s always safety first.  Enjoy, and Happy Father’s Day!

Lifeguard Season! Thank you

May 25, 2013 in Las Vegas Local, Lifeguard, Swimming

This weekend is the unofficial beginning of summer and it also means the start of lifeguard season.  Make no mistake, anytime a lifeguard is on the job is lifeguard season.  However, Memorial Day and the beginning of summer signal a number of things including the end of the school year, a rising heat index, the local pool opening, families taking vacations and people flocking to the beach.  More people looking to cool off and relax by getting in the water leads to greater responsibility, and potentially longer hours, for lifeguards everywhere.  Translated, summer is lifeguard season.

Lifeguards ensure the safety of everyone in and around the water.  Sometimes the rest of us just can’t help ourselves, screwing things up so badly that a lifeguard is needed to make it right.  No matter the circumstance, lifeguards always answer the call.  Their job requires fitness, focus, awareness, recognition and clarity.  Lifeguards also need quality gear that will perform when it matters most.  Many lifeguards choose Swim2000 for all their apparel, gear and equipment needs.  Swim2000 appreciates their support but we would also like to recognize every lifeguard for what they do.  From the staff at Swim2000, and on behalf of everyone on your watch, we send our sincerest appreciation and gratitude to lifeguards everywhere.  For everything you do, thank you.  Be safe, enjoy the summer and have a great lifeguard season!

Swim2000 is back in action!
