With the summer months quickly approaching, the Y is committed to helping children, families and all residents feel safe and comfortable in and around water. The Community YMCA is pleased to offer Learn to Swim Week, a national YMCA initiative designed to introduce the aquatic environment to beginners, teach basic learn-to-swim skills and increase water safety awareness for families. The 4 or 5-day programs are great for beginners of all ages with little to no swimming ability. "We are pleased to offer this annual community outreach program to our friends and neighbors and keep it affordable for all participants," said The Community YMCA President and CEO Rhonda Anderson. "Learn to Swim Week reflects the Y's commitment to social responsibility by providing our community with a water safety program to help keep everyone safe this summer." Since 2008, Learn to Swim Week has helped nearly 1,000 participants develop basic water safety skills. "The purpose of Learn to Swim Week is to encourage safety and teach beginners of all ages basic water safety skills," said Rebecca Rivera, aquatics director at the Y's Family Health & Wellness Center. "The Y stresses the importance of keeping your family safe and vigilant around the water this summer and encourages all beginners to take lessons." The 4-day water safety program runs from June 24-29 and the community program fee is $12 for the week. This program is for pre-school and youth ages 3-10. The 5-day program is held from June 23-27 and the program fee is $15 for the week. The program includes lessons for all ages 6 months to adult. All participants must register for Learn to Swim Week.
