Summer is here mamas…despite the recent *bonus* cool front we received last weekend. That means swimming pools and splash pads galore to cool your kids off during the next 6-8 months of sizzling weather in South Florida! We are so excited to partner with the YMCA of South Palm Beach County (basically, the Boynton and Boca locations) to talk about swim safety AND the new YMCA swim program they just introduced.
NEW Progressive YMCA Swim Program
The YMCA’s NEW Progressive Swim Program will help local parents make sure their kiddos learn essential water safety skills. This can open up a world of possibilities for children to satisfy their curiosity safely.
Teaching children how to be safe around water is not a luxury. It is a necessity, especially in Florida.
The YMCA swim program is arranged by progressive stages and children are placed in lessons according to their skill and age. Within the levels, swimmers will learn skills such as personal safety, breath control and other fundamental swimming skills they will be able to use throughout their lifetime. Here’s how the classes are divided:
What about the instructors?
YMCA swim program instructors are nationally certified and their training includes:
- First Aid
- Oxygen Administration
You’ll never have to worry that your child’s instructor isn’t anything less than top notch and professional.
