In Y Swim Lessons participants learn and practice new swimming skills and feel a sense of achievement from mastering something new that they can enjoy the rest of their lives. While participating in fun water sports and games, children also increase their physical activity levels. Participants in Y Swim Lesson are connected to others in the class, make new friends and recognize new role models. The participants are more comfortable and secure around water, as they learn water safety and improve their swim skills.
The YMCA of Michiana is dedicated to keeping our local kids safe around water. Michiana Swims provides free swim gear, lessons and transportation to local second graders who might otherwise not have the opportunity. The program supported entirely by community support through donations and grants.
