Join us for this important workshop on pool safety brought to you by the YMCA on Friday, July 12th, 2:30 – 3pm. No registration is required.
The Y is “America’s Swim Instructor” and the most accessible community resource to prevent drowning and encourage a lifelong enjoyment of swimming. The Y introduced the country to the concept of group swim lessons more than 100 years ago (1909), and each year, the Y teaches more than a million children invaluable water safety and swimming skills. As one of the largest community-based organizations in the country, the Y owns or manages over 2,000 pools. Thanks to its size and reach, the Y is in a unique position to help bridge the gap in the delivery of swim lessons and water safety education in the U.S.
Teaching children how to be safe around water is not a luxury; it is a necessity. The YMCA’s Safety Around Water program can help you make sure they learn essential water safety skills, which can open up a world of possibilities for them to satisfy their curiosity safely.
YMCA Safety Around Water program is the cornerstone of our YMCA version 6 swim basics program and is made up of several safety topics as wells two key skill sequences:
• Jump, push, turn, grab
• Swim, float swim
These skills are essential to any children that may unexpectedly find themselves in or submerged in the water and assist to help in their potential survival in that situation.
