FREE Safety Around Water Classes Offered This Spring

By February 17, 2020No Comments

Drowning is the leading cause of death for children 1 to 4 years old, and the second leading cause of death for children from 5 to 14 years old.  60% of kids who drown are within 10 feet of safety, while 88% of children who drown do so under adult supervision.  Research shows that participation in formal water safety and swim lessons can help reduce drowning risk.

Safety Around Water is a program designed to reach children at risk of drowning and teach basic water safety skills.  Please join us for a free preview into our YMCA swim lesson program.  Preschool participants must be accompanied by an adult in the water.
