Are you and your loved ones planning on swimming this summer? Here are a few safety tips from one of our Aquatics Directors to help keep everyone safe around water.

  • Make sure kids always swim under supervision from a parent, lifeguard or another responsible adult. They should never swim alone.
  • Tell children to always walk around the pool.
  • Kids need to know that if they see someone in the water who is in trouble, they should NEVER swim to them. They should tell an adult or lifeguard. They can throw something out to the person in trouble so they can float on until help arrives.
  • Kids and adults should always wear a Coast Guard-approved lifejacket correctly on a boat and around the water.

Most important, be sure you and your loved ones know how to swim. The Y is a national leader in swimming lessons. We have lessons underway right now.
