May is Safety Around Water Month at the Y

The world is 71% water and your children are 100% curious

Join us in May for our Safety Around Water campaign — a month-long program dedicated to teaching your child critical drown-prevention skills. Find a branch near you for low- to no-cost lessons in the month of May. Space is limited. Registration closes April 26 — register online today!

Swim safety is vitally important to fulfilling the Y’s mission and cause. Because we are devoted to the well-being of every person involved in Y programs, ensuring water safety is an important part of what we do every day.

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.
