Children under the age of two should get swimming lessons, according to an announcement from Roxana Mărăcineanu, Sports Minister and ex-swimming champion.

In 2018 there were 330 drownings of children under six.

Ecole Primare (ages 6 to 11) is too late to start,” said the Minister.  Initiation classes will start in maternelle (ages 2 to 6) next year, where children will learn to have their head in water, control breathing, and cross a pool.
