Safety Around Water
Water safety is about far more than being safe. It’s about providing your children new opportunities for growth and development. It’s about your children staying active and healthy. It’s about them gaining the confidence that comes from accomplishing new skills.
YMCA of the USA developed the Safety Around Water curriculum based on over 100 years of swimming instruction and safety lessons. The programs have been upgraded and refined over the years and the most recent update was completed in early 2015 by an advisory committee from 24 YMCA’s throughout the country. This 5-session course teaches children two sets of skills that will reduce the risk of drowning and give you and your children confidence in and around water.
