Aqua Patrol

As her Girl Scout Gold Award Project, Kristen Thebeau worked with the Haddam-Killingworth Recreation Department to create the Aqua Patrol webpage for the Haddam and Killingworth communities. Aqua Patrol includes a hire-a-lifeguard resource for residents of Haddam and Killingworth, water safety information to help prevent drownings, and a video to raise awareness about the importance of water safety.

Hire a Lifeguard

Most drownings occur because of a lack of supervision. This hire-a-lifeguard resource is an attempt to reduce accidental drownings in backyard pools by providing American Red Cross certified lifeguards to the Haddam-Killingworth community.

If you would like to hire-a-lifeguard for your own backyard pool party, email the HK Rec Dept. at robyne@hkrec.com.

**Please include your name, phone number and the following information about the party: location (address), the number of attendants, date, and time.**

Water Safety Information

Not everyone has to be a professional lifeguard to keep swimmers safe around the water. Here are some simple ways to improve water safety:

  1. Supervise all water-related activities – drownings can happen in any body of water, including bathtubs and buckets of water. The easiest way to keep everyone safe is supervise all activities around the water. For example, in the case of bathtubs, it is best to leave the door unlocked so it is easy to get in in case of an emergency.
  2. Swim lessons – learning to swim is the best way to keep everyone safe! Enroll children or adults who do not know how to swim in lessons as soon as possible to make sure they can handle themselves in and around the water. Make sure to check out the swim lesson programs offered by HK Rec.
  3. Wear a lifejacket – on a boat, in the water park, or even in the pool, lifejackets save lives. If someone is not a strong swimmer, it is important to wear a lifejacket to provide support and a means of floatation when in the water.

The video below provides water safety tips and lessons for children or adults interested in reviewing some of the best water safety tips to know around the pool.

This recreational program is designed to promote basketball enthusiasm as much as basketball skill, fun, physical fitness, friendship and good sportsmanship. Each player will have one minute to shoot from “hotspots” placed on one half of the court. Starting at the center of the half-court line, the player dribbles into shooting range. The contest challenges a player’s speed, shooting, dribbling, and rebounding ability. Three one minute rounds constitute the duration of play for each player.

The top scorer in each division will advance to the State Competition on Saturday, March 28th at the Old Saybrook Recreation Center, 308 Main Street in Old Saybrook.

Residents only! Age as of 12/31/19

Return forms by March 6th to avoid late fee!
