“America’s Swim Instructor”

Safety Around Water teaches basic water awareness skills, but is not a substitute for learning how to swim. Swim lessons are always available at eight area YMCAs for a fee and at most Y Summer Day Camps. Known as “America’s Swim Instructor,” the Y also offers swim teamsclinicswater fitness classescertifications and training and many more aquatics programs year-round. Scholarships are available for all of these programs.
