Help Keep Your Kids Safe

YMCA-A_300x250-FINALDuring June, we will be 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.

Build More Than Muscle

Program Guide Cover Spring 1 2017 WebBeing healthy means more than simply being physically active. It’s about maintaining a balanced spirit, mind and body.

The Y is a place where you can work toward that balance by challenging yourself or your child to learn a new skill or how to swim.  We foster connections with friends through our wellness programs. We bring your loved ones closer together through our many family-centered activities.

At the Y, it’s not about the activity you choose as much as it is about the benefits of living healthier on the inside as well as the outside.

Learn more about the Y Programs in our 2017 Spring Session Program Guide.  The Spring 1 Session begins on April 24 and runs through June 18. Program Registration starts on Tuesday, April 4 for Members; on Tuesday, April 11 for Community. Register at the Y in person or by calling; on-line via the web or our mobile app.
