BRIDGING THE GAP BETWEEN SWIM EDUCATION AND CHILDHOOD DROWNING

With more than 110 years of experience equipping people with the skills they need to stay safe in and around water, the Y is America’s most trusted swim instructor. Each year, the Y teaches more than one million kids life-saving swimming and safety around water skills.

The YMCA of South Florida believes swimming is a life skill.  Given the Y’s reach and long history with aquatic programs, we are in a unique position to help prevent childhood drowning through swim lessons and water safety education.

YMCA AQUATICS MISSION

MAKE KIDS SAFER

Miami Dade & Broward counties lead the nation with the most child drownings.

3 kids die from drowning every day

64% of African American, 45% of Hispanic / Latino, and 40% of Caucasian children have little to no swimming ability.

Children ages 1-4 have the highest rates of drowning and non-fatal drowning hospitalizations.

For every child who dies from downing, another 5 receive emergency department care for nonfatal submersion injuries. ​

Formal swimming lessons reduce the likelihood of childhood drowning by 88%.
