Safety Around Water

Ages 3-15

Teaching children how to be safe around water is not a luxury—it is a necessity. The YMCA’s Safety Around Water program can help you make sure they learn essential water safety skills, which can open up a world of possibilities for them to satisfy their curiosity safely.

Lincoln YMCAs include certain safety around water skills within their swimming lesson curriculum. Skills include:

  • Exercises to help kids adjust to being the water
  • Instruction in "Jump, Push, Turn, Grab" and "Swim, Float, Swim", two skill sets kids can use if they unexpectedly find themselves in the water
  • Specific safety topics, like what do do if you see someone in the water who needs help
