Drowning remains the second leading cause of accidental death among children ages 1 – 14, and the CDC recommends formal swimming lessons as a way to reduce that risk. We here at the Valley Shore YMCA are determined to keep children safe and help them learn to enjoy water activities. That is why we are offering a full week of FREE water safety and swim lessons to any child ages 3-12 in our service area.
Our goal is to provide valuable lifesaving water safety and swim instruction to more than 200 children in our service area by offering four consecutive (40 min) swim lessons Tuesday, June 14th – Friday, June 17th. This program is designed for children that have little or no experience with organized swim lessons.
We will test children on their first day and put them into appropriate levels. It’s that simple! The only caveat to this whole program is that you MUST register by 9:00 pm on June 8, 2022.
Please email Andrea Wagner, Aquatics Director or drop it off at the Welcome Desk at the Y:
Space is limited to the first 200 participants, so please register today!
Cost: Absolutely Free
