With summer just around the corner, so are hotter temperatures. With hotter temperatures, we know there comes a desire to cool off in the water, and we encourage all of you to spend time as a family in one of our many pools at our YMCA centers, but with safety as the utmost importance.
Nationally, drowning is the second leading cause of unintentional death for children, and we know water safety skills are critical for all. As the leader in aquatics in our community, teaching more than 9,800 swimming lessons per year, we invite you and your family to join us in swimming lessons or our Safety Around Water program as we work hard to ensure ALL in our community, regardless of their ability to pay, are able to participate and learn how to swim.
We spend a lot of time training our staff on water safety and getting our pools ready for all of you. We can’t wait to have you out to enjoy one of our many pools! Don’t forget to check out our Wilson Y Splash Pad while you’re at it.
Please peruse our newsletter to see all of the wonderful things we have to offer this summer. We look forward to sharing the BEST. SUMMER. EVER. At our YMCA with you!
All my best,
Gary A. Cobb
President and CEO
