The YMCA of Greater Rochester believes everyone should learn to be safe in and around water. That’s why we open our doors to the entire community each year for Safety Around Water Week, a free water safety and basic swimming skills program for those with little or no experience.

This year, Safety Around Water Week will run from April 17 – April 21.  *See below for Corning Community YMCA dates.

Classes are grouped by age, from age six months to adult, with both morning and evening classes available. Safety Around Water Week classes run Monday through Thursday, with Family Swim time for Safety Around Water participants and their families on Friday.

Thank you D&C Digital for being the Presenting Sponsor of Safety Around Water Week.
