Did you know?
According to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, one in five people who die from drowning are children 14 and younger! A large percentage of children drown within 6-10 feet of safety. Most of these drownings happen because of no or very little basic water safety knowledge and skills.
The National Drowning Prevention Alliance website states that drowning claims the lives of an estimated 372,000 individuals each year.
Swimming is not only for kids!
Adult swim lessons are pivotal to making lasting change in drowning rates. Nearly 37% of adults in the United States cannot swim the length of a pool, putting them at risk of drowning, and this problem is generational. When an adult learns to swim, it becomes far more likely that the person's children will learn, breaking the cycle of non-swimming families.
We live in an area surrounded by lakes, ponds, streams, rivers and pools. Being comfortable in and around water is an essential skill we ALL must have! To avoid adding to these statistics, see how the YMCA can help you:
