Water Safety Program

As a leader in drowning prevention, the YMCAs of Tampa Bay have teamed up with the Florida Blue Foundation to expand the YMCA Water Safety program. Through this program, the Y helps children, families and adults learn essential water safety skills - which can be lifesaving. This summer, make the Y your home base for water safety. It’s never too late to save a life.



Water Saftey Sessions

Over eight weeks, each 40 minute session will include:

  • Exercises to help kids adjust to being in water
  • Instruction in “Jump, Push, Turn, Grab” and “Swim, Float, Swim” - two skill sets for children to use if they unexpectedly find themselves in the water
  • What to do if you see someone in the water who needs help
  • Fun activities that reinforce skills

Give your child:

  • The opportunity to build confidence around water
  • The accomplishment of learning new skills
  • The benefits of healthy exercise
  • The lifetime gift of staying safe around water
