Drowning can happen nearly anywhere with standing water. But, as a parent or
caregiver, you can’t keep your kids sidelined. You need to equip your children with
the tools they need to be confident in and around water so they don’t lose out
on the health benefits of exercise, the opportunities to bond with family and
friends and the sense of accomplishment when they learn new skills.
Teaching children how to be safe around water is not a luxury; it is a necessity.
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.
Safety Around Water is a 4-session course teaches kids water safety and basic swimming
skills that help reduce the risk of drowning and builds confidence in and around water.

Safety Around Water is free to participants. It is open to anyone in the community who wants their children to learn how to be safe in and around water.
