Everyone should know how to swim!
YMCA swim lessons are designed to help each participant learn how to swim better and be safe in the water. The Garden City Family YMCA offers progressive classes for ages 6 months through adult. Learn the basics, then build your skills and develop your technique. Private, partner and group lessons are available. The Y, through generous funding from the Finnup Foundation also offers FREE Y Splash basic water safety classes. These are not lessons but will teach youth and adults basic safety around water skills.
Why learn to swim?
Swimming develops all muscle groups evenly
Each year, over 8,000 people learn to swim at the Y
Drowning is the leading cause of death in children age 1 - 5 yrs
It may take 30-80 swim lessons to learn to swim independently
Skills will dwindle if swimmers practice only in the summer!
