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.
There is a reason the Y is referred to as America’s Favorite Swim Instructor. In Y Swim Lessons, not only are you taught how to swim, but you also learn about yourself, about safety and rescue skills, and about water activities you can enjoy for a lifetime. Instruction is caring and personalized. A variety of classes are available to meet your family’s needs. Class size is determined by considering safety factors and the age of the participants, making sure classes don’t get too big to be uncomfortable.
(kid’s 6 mos-3 yrs. & parent)
