The YMCAs of Tampa Bay and the Florida Blue Foundation will resume offering free Safety Around Water lessons during the week of Aug. 3 to Aug. 6, at the Tampa Metropolitan Area YMCA, YMCA of the Suncoast and YMCA of Greater St. Petersburg. The program is free for all beginners and non-swimmers, ages 3 to 12, in the Tampa Bay community. The four-day course with certified instructors will teach a sequenced set of skills that can reduce the risk of drowning and give the kids confidence in and around water. Participants must be present the first day of class, and bring a swimsuit and towel. A YMCA membership is not required, but preregistration is. Contact your local YMCA for information.
