The Center for Disease Control and Prevention reports that from 2005-2014, there were an average of 3,536 fatal unintentional drownings (non-boating related) annually in the United States — about ten deaths per day. An additional 332 people died each year from drowning in boating-related incidents. Also, about one in five people who die from drowning are children 14 and younger.
Adults need lessons too. If you do not feel confident around water to save yourself or watch a child, sign up for swim lessons at the Y! Adult lessons follow the swim Lesson structure as with our younger students. Utilizing a clear progression track based upon age and ability, participants build confidence to reach swimming skill milestones. All lessons emphasize personal safety around water.
Here’s how the new structure benefits you and your family:
- Lessons are designed for students of all ages and abilities
- Students receive personalized attention by highly-trained instructors
- Allows us to communicate progress effectively
Instruction is offered in 4 stages:
Stage 1 Water Acclimation: Students develop comfort with underwater exploration and learn to safely exit in the event of falling into a body of water in stage 1. This stage lays the foundation that allows for a student?s future progress in swimming.
Stage 2 Water Movement: Stage 2 Water Movement. In stage 2, students focus on body position and control, directional change, and forward movement in the water while also continuing go practice how to safely exit in the event of falling into a body of water.
Stage 3 Water Stamina: In stage 3, students learn how to swim to safety from a longer distance than in previous stages in the event of falling into a body of water. This stage also introduces rhythmic breathing and integrated arm and leg action.
Stage 4 Stroke Introduction: Students in stage 4 develop stroke technique in front crawl and back crawl and learn the breaststroke kick and butterfly kick. Water safety is reinforced through treading water and elementary backstroke.
