Open to everyone – membership not required
The YMCA, a leading nonprofit dedicated to strengthening communities through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, is offering free swim assessment and water safety tips during the week of July 13-16. YMCA trained instructors will help get youth ready for lessons and a safe summer by the pool. Families can check with a local Y to find out when instructors will be available – either 10-11 a.m. or 5-6 p.m., Monday through Thursday. Registration and YMCA membership are not required. Participants should bring a swim suit and towel, and goggles if they want. To register for swim lesson, go to swim lessons or visit the Y to discuss what would be the best session to attend.
