As part of National Water Safety Month in May, the YMCA of Rock River Valley is offering free swim lessons to teenagers.
As the Y was recruiting for new lifeguards, we received feedback that many teens couldn’t apply because they didn’t know how to swim. Drowning accidents are a leading cause of injury and death among young people – and it can be prevented with lifesaving water safety skills. The Y is encouraging teens to take advantage of this free opportunity to increase their safety and introduce a new healthy activity into their lifestyle.
Fridays, May 18 & 25
Two lesson times: 4:30 p.m. & 5:15 p.m.
