Why learn to swim?

- Each year, over 8,000 people learn to swim at the Y
- Drowning is the leading cause of death in children age 1 - 5 yrs
- It may take 30-80 swim lessons to learn to swim independently
- Skills will dwindle if swimmers practice only in the summer!
Why the Y?
- Small class sizes (6:1) for one-on-one attention
- Curriculum focused on safety & core skill development
- Nationally-certified instructors
- Tools to help track progress and mark achievements
