Safety Around Water Initiative from YMCA

Teaching children how to be safe around water is not a luxury; it is a necessity. The YMCA’s Safety Around Water program can help you make sure they learn essential water safety skills, which can open up a world of possibilities for them to satisfy their curiosity safely.

Just in time for National Water Safety Month and the unofficial start of both summer and swim season, learn critical information about the importance of teaching children—and adults—how to swim and be safe around water. Learn why swimming is one of the most important life skills parents can help their children learn, and what parents can do to make sure they are being responsible ‘water watchers’ this summer swim season.
