The Y is committed to raising awareness around the preventable tragedy that is youth drowning.
Swim lessons are an essential part of keeping kids safe in and around the water, but there’s no substitution for parental or adult supervision. Often times when everyone is watching the kids; that means no one is watching the kids. There should always be someone designated to watch the kids, especially when they’re around water.
SO, HOW CAN YOU HELP?
Help us increase water safety awareness within the community. The more we get the word out, the more likely we are to prevent another death. The first step is to take our Water Watcher pledge!
