2nd Grade to YMCA: Saftey Around Water Program
2nd Grade to YMCA: Saftey Around Water Program

Tuesday, February 04, 2020

Brookwood second graders will once again be participating in the free Safety Around Water program at the Geneva Lakes YMCA.

Did you know that about one in five people who die from drowning are children 14 and younger? Did you know 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 second graders will travel once a week for 6 weeks for a tailored program to meet every students current swimming ability. The YMCA staff will teach them basic skills in a sequence to help return them to safety. What a valuable life experience.
