Safety Around Water
June 4-8, 2018

A great way to splash into water safety for the summer.

If you know how to stay safe in and around water, swimming can be a lifelong source of fun and exercise. Instead of keeping your children away from water, help them learn fundamental water safety skills by enrolling them in lessons. These classes can provide them a new, exciting way to keep active and meet new friends.

This one week class is designed to remind swimmers 6 on up, how to be safe in and around water. This is 5 hours packed full of fun and learning. Only this week of lessons has buses running from all Noble County school districts and the Prairie Heights school area, to help get the children to YMCA.  $10 for the week.

 

Swimmers can register for whatever time they would like as long as they have a ride.  Please use the registration form for the time slot you would like. 

 

 Register on-line beginning May 1, 2018.
