Safety Around Water
We are offering Safety Around Water, a free program designed to engage and educate families about the importance of water safety skills.
Through the Safety Around Water program, parents and caregivers will be encouraged to help their children learn fundamental water safety and swimming skills. During the course, child will learn how to respond if they find themselves in unexpected water situations – – from how to reach the water’s surface if they submerge to safely reaching a pool’s edge or exiting any body of water.
For detailed program information, please contact our Aquatics Department or Member Service Team. Class times and locations vary by program and Y Branch.
Children in Y Swim Lessons, Y Preschool, Y Summer Day Camp and Y Afterschool programs will be offered the Safety Around Water program during their program time period.
Community Members, please preregister for the program that best meets your family schedule. Call the Y for registration details.
