Teaching children how to be safe around water is not a luxury; it is a necessity. The YMCA’s Safety Around Water program can help you make sure they learn essential water safety skills, which can open up a world of possibilities for them to satisfy their curiosity safely.

We’re taking a stand against drowning

On Memorial Day, all YMCA pools were open to the public and included free water safety demonstrations! Below is a video of the of kids learning to “reach or throw – don’t go” at the Northpark YMCA.



Help Keep Your Children Safe

Drowning can happen nearly anywhere with standing water. But, as a parent or caregiver, you can’t keep your children sidelined. You need to equip them with the tools they need to be confident in and around water so they don’t lose out on the health benefits of exercise, the opportunities to bond with family and friends and the sense of accomplishment when they learn new skills.

Our Safety Around Water program is currently offered at various apartment complexes in and around Fort Worth.
