The Northern California Chapter of the National Drowning Prevention Alliance

The Northern California Chapter of the National Drowning Prevention Alliance that resides at Sutton Swim School is dedicated to promoting the message that Drowning IS Preventatble!

Our goal is to host events in the Bay Area that promote drowning awareness by creating a drowning task force. We hope to reach children and their families all across the Bay Area to educate them on how to be safer when in, on, or around water. It is important to remember that no one is ever "water safe" but you can be "safer" in, on, or near the water.

Here are some facts for you:

  • Drowning is the leading cause of unintentional injury deaths for children ages 1 to 4.
  • Drowning is the second leading cause of unintentional injury deaths for children 1-14 years.
  • Drowning is the 5th leading cause of unintentional injury deaths for all ages in the United States

What can you do to help?

Attend one of our events! Please be sure to invite your family and friends. If we all join together we can make a difference.

Sign your children up for swimming lessons, they are proven to reduce the risk of drowning. Swimming lessons is the only recreational activity you can sign your child up for that will help save their life one day.
