Water Safety & Free Swim Lessons for Kids This Summer at YMCA Ann Arbor

We're proud to offer our swimming pools every summer to the YMCA to help teach kids the importance of water safety. Check out the dates and learn more: Click Here

Water safety is an essential life skill that every child should learn. Drowning is the leading cause of unintentional injury-related deaths among children aged 1 to 4 years old, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Fortunately, many of these deaths can be prevented by teaching young children how to stay safe in and around water.

In addition to swimming lessons, this class will teach children about water safety rules. This includes teaching them to never go near the water without an adult present, to always wear a life jacket when boating or swimming in deep water, and to never run near a pool or other body of water.

McKinley is proud to partner with the YMCA in Ann Arbor to provide a free space to teach children about water safety.
