Drowning is the leading cause of accidental death in Florida among children ages 1-14.
At the Y, we know that learning to swim is a lesson of a lifetime and in Florida, all people need to live safely around water. For more than 100 years, we have been empowering youth with the water safety skills they need to be safe in and around water – and most importantly, we have fun too!
SPLASH WEEK is a FREE, 5-day swim program (April 20 - April 24) for youth ages 4-12 years-old. Each day children will enjoy swim instruction, character development lessons, and water safety education. Instructors from our YMCA of Central Florida Swim Academy will instill a love of the water while teaching basic stroke development and making learning exciting and fun. Personal safety lessons will help children and parents learn respect for the water and build safety knowledge.
This program is open to the public and will be offered at 20 locations across Central Florida.
