Pool Cool Logo

The goal of Pool Cool is to increase awareness, motivation and sun protection practices among pool staff and patrons. Childhood sunburns can cause skin cancer -- the most common type of cancer in the U.S. is largely preventable.

Everyone can help prevent skin cancer for themselves and their children by minimizing exposure to the sun between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., seeking shade from the mid-day sun when possible, wearing clothes, hats and sunglasses to protect the skin, using sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 30or more and avoiding sunlamps and tanning beds.
