Safety Around Water Program – Jackson YMCA
May 28 all-day
Safety Around Water Program - Jackson YMCA

During National Water Safety Month the Jackson YMCA offers Safety Around Water, a free program designed to engage and educate parents about the importance of water safety skills and provide youth access to water safety lessons. This four-day course, held May 28-31 at the Jackson YMCA downtown, teaches children ages 3-14 the skills that will reduce the risk of drowning and give them confidence in and around water. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, drowning is the second-leading cause of unintentional injury death (after motor vehicle crashes) among children ages 1-14.

A typical Safety Around Water session includes:

• Exercises to help children adjust to being in water

• Instruction in “Jump, Push, Turn, Grab” and “Swim, Float, Swim,” two skill sets children can use if they unexpectedly find themselves in the water

• An activity that teaches children about specific safety topics such as pool rules

• A fun game to encourage comfort and activity around water

“The goal is to get kids comfortable around water,” said YMCA Aquatics Director Alexa Markham. “They will learn what to do if they fall into water; they will learn why life jackets are important and how to put them on. Safety Around Water is a great starting point to not only get kids comfortable in the water but also teach their parents the importance of developing water safety skills.”

How to register

Although the program is free, space is limited and pre-registration is required. Sign up in person at 127 W. Wesley St., Jackson, MI 49201. Call 517.782-0537 for more information. The registration deadline is Saturday, May 25 by noon.
