outreach swim

The YMCA is committed to providing safe swimming techniques to all children in our local community through Safety Around Water-the YMCA’s signature water safety and drowning prevention program.

Through partnerships with local schools and youth service organizations we have reached more children than any other provider in our area. During a typical year, your YMCA teaches safety around water to roughly 800 children through outreach swim lessons-all at no cost for the children and their families. This is in addition to our traditional private and small group lessons offered to the general public.
