Safety Around Water Program

THE WORLD IS 71% WATER

KIDS ARE 100% INTERESTED

WHAT IS SAFETY AROUND WATER?

HAVE FUN

This program teaches children from all backgrounds that
water should be fun, not feared, as long as you know how to stay safe in or around water. In Safety Around Water, kids learn what to do if they find themselves in water unexpectedly.

BE CONFIDENT
 

Children learn fundamental water safety skills that include what to look for in a safe place to swim and how to swim a short distance on their front, roll over onto their back to rest, and then roll on their front to continue swimming to safety.

The Y is “America’s Swim Instructor” and the most accessible community resource to prevent drowning and encourage a lifelong enjoyment of swimming.

DROWNING IS PREVENTABLE

Lessons are taught by certified, caring staff.

Drowning is the second leading cause of death in kids ages 2-14 and 60% of drownings happen within just 10 feet of safety. That’s unacceptable to us. We teach life-saving skills to lower those statistics.

In 2019, we taught over 1,200 children how to swim.
