NOW OFFERING: Safety Around Water (Swim BASICS)

Thanks to the generous support of the YMCA of the USA, the YMCA of Southern Arizona is offering a free swim lesson session to non-swimmers (one session per person). Over the course of eight 30-minute swim lessons, children ages 3-14 years learn important skills in and around water, including:

  • Basic swim skills, like floating, blowing bubbles, the freestyle stroke, and the front crawl
  • Safety skills, like CPR, identifying a safe place to swim, and water rescue techniques (“Reach or Throw, Don’t Go”)
  • Survival swim skills, like pushing off the bottom of the pool to resurface (“Jump, Push, Turn, Grab”) and a method of swimming on your front and back (“Swim, Float, Swim”)
