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
