Thorold Cannonball Tips

Firstly, check the depth of the water where you plan to jump into the pool. Make absolutely sure the depth is enough for you to avoid injury. Be safe and never jump into water that is not as deep as you are tall.

Check the area all around you. Step back about 3 to 5 yards from the edge of the pool.

Alert other people that you will be jumping into the water.

Jump and pull your knees up to your chest, and wrap your arms around your legs and go high to make the biggest splash possible.

When you take off, yell CANNONBALL in mid air and have fun. Keep safety in mind at all times when enjoying a swim. Remember, cool is the rule when you swim in a pool.
