As Americas Swim
Instructor, YMCAs across America are the most accessible community resource
to prevent drowning and encourage a lifelong enjoyment of swimming. For more
than 50 years, the Duneland Family YMCA has been a trusted resource for high
quality swim lessons and water safety instruction. Registration is now open
for the mid-summer swim lesson session. Lessons start on July 2 and run
through July 29.
YMCA swim lessons
increase the accessibility and enjoyment of swimming to all ages and skill
levels. "All children, regardless of background, skills or age,
should have access to swim lessons," said Andrew Zimmer, Aquatics Director
at the Y. "Its a rite of passage that can lead to a love of swimming that
lasts a lifetime, while increasing confidence, physical activity and
well-being. We teach more than 300 children annually how to swim, and how to
keep themselves safe when theyre around water."
To ensure that
everyone has an opportunity to participate, financial assistance is
available to those in need to help cover the costs.
