Safety Around Water in Indoor Pool

Redding Area First Graders are coming to the Y to participate in Safety Around Water! Through learning to perform a sequenced set of skills, the risk of drowining is reduced, giving the children confidence in and around water. The Indoor Pool schedule will be affected by these special classes.

A typical session includes:

  • Exercises to help kids adjust to being in water
  • Instruction in "Jump, Push, Turn, Grab" and "swim, Float, Swim," two skill sets kids can use if they unexpectedly find themselves in water
  • Specific safety topics like what to do if you see someone in the water who needs help
  • Fun activities that reinforce skills.
