The Florence Family YMCA’s Safety Around Water Program Helps Keep Florence Kids Safe

Water safety lessons start this Saturday for only $5!

[Florence 6/12/18] – Through Safety Around Water, children learn fundamental water safety and swimming skills. During the six-day course, children will learn how to respond if they find themselves in unexpected water situations -- from how to reach the water’s surface if they submerge to safely reaching a pool’s edge or exiting any body of water.  

To help achieve its goal to make swim lessons more accessible for all children, this summer the Y will award 100 scholarships for swim lessons to children in high-risk and underserved communities in Florence.  Children who cannot swim and have not had swim lessons before can receive six swim lessons for only $5! 

Families interested in learning more about Safety Around Water and how to enroll their child in local Y swimming and water safety classes should call 843-665-1234 or visit
