The YMCA of the Shoals offer free swim lessons to children between the ages of 6 to 12 years old. The goal of our SPLASH swim lessons is to make learning to swim accessible to all families in our community. We believe that every child should be familiar with the water and how to be safe when at the pool or at the beach.
According to the Center for Disease Prevention and Control, an estimated 1,200 children under age 15 die each year from drowning. With the summer season having passed and the YMCA of the Shoals Aquatic Center in full swing with year round swim lessons we will be offering youth of the community the opportunity to participate in the YMCA Splash learn to swim program at no charge in the fall. Please call the Y at 256-246-9622 for further information.
