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

Safety Around Water will be the week of June 6th–10th with limited times and dates which vary by branch. Registration is now open!

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, 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. (Ages vary by location) Kids will meet 4 days during that week for 30 minutes, with a family swim time on Friday, June 10th.

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