Stay Safe and Cool in the Pool

With water all around us in Central Florida, it’s imperative that all kids learn to be safe in and around water. That’s why the Y has developed a full array of water safety classes and swim lessons for kids of all ages and abilities, including infants. These swim programs save lives and allow kids to build confidence in the water that lasts a lifetime as they have fun! Help your child learn to swim this summer with the Y.

Swim Lessons 

Choose from group swim lessons or private lessons with certified instructors from an aquatics program that has taught kids, teens, adults, and seniors how to swim for generations. We offer safety-enhanced swim lessons for all ages and abilities so you can find a class that best fits your needs.

Safe Start

Safe Start and Infant Swimming Resource (ISR) are the leading behavioral-based approaches to swimming lessons, using techniques that are developmentally appropriate for your child. Non-walking infants will be taught to roll onto their back to float, rest, and breathe while children that are walking will be taught to use a swim-float-swim sequence to reach safety.

Safety Around Water 

In the state of Florida, drowning is the leading cause of accidental death in children under age 4. Learning to stay safe around water may begin at the Y, but it doesn’t end there. That’s why, every year during National Drowning Prevention Month, we engage and educate families with unique tips and activities to promote safety around water.

Summer Youth Sports

At the Y, our goal is to nurture the full potential of every child throughout their sports season, during their games, and beyond. Our Youth Sports programs provide a healthy way for your child to improve their skills, develop sportsmanship, learn how to effectively communicate with their teammates, and see positive role models in action. With a wide variety of sports to choose from and convenient locations across Central Florida, the Y is ready to help your child stay active, grow healthier, and have fun this summer!
