May is National Water Safety Month

Did you know that drowning is the leading cause of death for children 1 to 4 years old? As a leading provider in swimming lessons and community outreach for over 100 years, here at the Y we know the urgency around teaching children and families how to be safe around water. As we approach the hot summer season, we want  to help our families and community stay safe this summer.

In recognition of May being National Water Safety Month, we want all of our members to learn the hard facts about drowning, how we can all commit to drowning prevention, and how we can work together in our community to spread the word around the importance of water safety at all times. Please follow us on Facebook or Instagram to receive information on Water Safety Wednesdays through May and additional information throughout the month to help your family stay safe around water this summer!

Drowning is 100% preventable and we need your help to ensure that our kids stay safe this summer!
