Safety around water

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.

 

WHAT IS SAFETY AROUND WATER?

This 4-day course, taught by a certified instructor, teaches children two sets of skills that will reduce the risk of drowning and give them confidence in and around water.   

HELP KEEP YOUR CHILDREN SAFE.

Drowning can happen nearly anywhere with standing water. But, as a parent or caregiver, you can’t keep your children sidelined. You need to equip them with the tools they need to be confident in and around water so they don’t lose out on the health benefits of exercise, the opportunities to bond with family and friends and the sense of accomplishment when they learn new skills.

ENROLL IN A YMCA SAFETY AROUND WATER PROGRAM TODAY!

Safety Around Water is open to anyone in the community who wants their children to learn how to be safe in and around water. The program is available to participants for a small fee.

AQUATICS AND SAFETY

Learning to swim at the YMCA is more than just stroke development. It’s a child-centered approach, where kids learn through play, hands-on exercises and creative repetition. The YMCA lesson curriculum is enhanced with YMCA character development, emphasizing the four core values of Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility. Children are taught in small groups in a progressive approach which allows each child to proceed at their own pace.
