To help keep kids safe, we have over 300 spots open for free “Safety Around Water” classes for ages 5-12 from June 17-20 at seven area YMCAs. In four, half-hour classes, the Y’s certified swim instructors will teach children basic safety skills and concepts, such as jump, push, turn, grab and swim, float and swim.

Known as “America’s Swim Instructor,” the Y also offers swim teamsclinicswater fitness classescertifications and training and many more aquatics programs year-round.
