The YMCA of Greenville is hosting Safety Around Water Day, a program built on a foundation of overall safety and risk
prevention that reflects the Y’s commitment to the well-being of all.
Summertime is here and with drowning being the second leading cause of death for children, the Y is committed to reducing the rates of drowning by providing water safety and swimming lessons to as many members of our community as
Formal swimming lessons can reduce this risk by 88%. Trained and certified instructors will be teaching participants – from ages 6 to 12 years old – basic comfort and survival swimming skills while working toward building confidence
around the water.
Participants will be taught how to react and respond if there is a water emergency. They will also learn about danger areas and topics such as backyard pools, waterfronts, recreational or community pools, and boats and watercraft safety. Safety Around Water Day is FREE and multiple session times are available at Caine Halter Family YMCA, Eastside Family YMCA, YMCA Program Center and Furman University Physical Activities Center.
