Since the recent tragic accident and death of Usher Raymond’s stepson Kile Glover who was declared brain dead after he was struck by a jet ski while inner tubing, I decided that I wanted to look into water sport safety. I think as parents we are always prepared when it comes to taking the kids to the pool or to the beach but I don’t think that we are really informed about the safety rules surrounding water sports.
I found a great resource called the Boating Recreational Industry. They have all types of information on safety tips regarding anything water related. I detailed below some great safety tips to follow regarding water sports. To see a complete list and explanation of each safety tip, visit Discover Boating. Please take some time to read this list if you plan to do any water sport activities with your kids. Our prayers are with Kile, Tameka Foster and the Raymond Family.
1. Always wear a life jacket.
2. Know your equipment
3. Be aware of water regulations
