Teaching Kids to Be Safe in and Around Water

Safety Around Water Week
Free Drowning Prevention Lessons
Select YMCAs

At the YMCA of Central Florida, we know that swimming is a life skill every child must learn to stay safe in the water – and have fun! We believe that water safety skills are a necessity – not a privilege.

With Florida leading the country in reported child drownings, the Y is committed to helping keep kids safe in and around water by providing free drowning prevention lessons across six counties at select YMCA locations during Safety Around Water Week, May 28-31.

Safety Around Water is a 4-day introductory swim program for kids ages 4-12. YMCA Swim Academy instructors will instill a love of the water while helping kids and parents build safety skills and knowledge.


The program is free, open to the public and will be offered at the following YMCA locations:

Blanchard Park YMCA – Orlando
