Safety Around Water

 
· Only swim when and where there is a lifeguard on duty; never swim alone.

· Adults should constantly and actively watch their children.

· Inexperienced or non-swimmers should wear a Coast Guard-approved life jacket. 

· Parents or guardians of young children should be within an arm’s reach.

· Children and adults should not engage in breath holding activities.

America's swim instructor. That is how the Y is recognized for its pioneering work in the field of swimming. Home to the world's first filtered pool, and more importantly, the first group Swim Lessons, the Y has a long history and excellent reputation of teaching people how to swim.

The YMCA of the Capital Area swimming lessons are designed to give every participant the chance to develop strong water skills. Participants are grouped together based on their age and ability level.  The Y offers both group lessons and private lessons.
