Help Keep Your Kids Safe

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.

Spring Program Guide

For Teaching Safety Around Water

Building a better us includes keeping your kids safe in and around water. Teaching children how to swim and be safe around water is one of the most important life skills parents can help their children learn. It not only saves lives; it builds confidence.

Many Y programs and classes build confidence! Summer camp, school age child care and family open swim. Learn more about all our Spring Programs in our Spring Program Guide.

Our Spring Session runs April 22 – June 9, 2019. Registration opens on Monday, April 1 for Members / Monday, April 8 for Community Members.
