Safety Around Water Week

Teaching children how to be safe around water is not a luxury; it is a necessity.

*Safety Around Water Week 2020 has been cancelled due to COVID-19.

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. That's why we open our doors to the entire community for Safety Around Water Week, a free water safety and basic swimming skills program for those with little or no experience. 

Classes are grouped by age, from grades Kindergarten through Sixth Grade, with both morning and evening classes available. Safety Around Water Week classes run Monday through Friday, with Family Swim time for Safety Around Water Week participants and their families on Friday or Saturday.

Pre-registration is required. Space is limited so be sure to register early.
