The Granite YMCA Swim Lessons Create Strong Swimmers and Confident Kids

Posted 05/18/2018

May is National Water Safety Month, and the perfect time to get children involved in swim lessons. As America’s Swim Instructor, the Y is the most accessible community resource to prevent drowning and encourage a lifelong enjoyment of swimming—teaching more than one million kids a year swimming and water safety skills.

YMCA Swim Lessons increase the accessibility and enjoyment of swimming to all ages and skill levels. The latest evolution of Y Swim Lessons accommodates varying abilities to help foster a sense of achievement as swimmers’ progress between levels. Through this approach, advanced swimmers flow more easily to higher levels while swimmers who need more instruction can learn at their own pace. This results in more confident swimmers who stick with lessons and develop a love for swimming that can last a lifetime.

“All children, regardless of background, skills or age, should have access to swim lessons,” said Anna-Lise Leblanc, Directors of Aquatics at the YMCA Allard Center of Goffstown. “It’s a rite of passage that can lead to a love of swimming that lasts a lifetime, while increasing confidence, safety around water, physical activity, and well-being.”

To ensure that everyone has an opportunity to participate, financial assistance is available to those in need to help cover the costs. In addition, The Granite YMCA is offering 50% off the join fee for new members that join May 14 – June 24, 2018. YMCA Members receive early registration and reduced fees for swim lessons.

Summer Session registration begins June 4 for YMCA members and June 7 for community members. Swim Lessons are offered at the following locations of The Granite YMCA:

YMCA of Downtown Manchester located at 30 Mechanic Street in Manchester, NH. For more information, contact Ronny Rose, Aquatics Coordinator at 603.232.8622 or email rrose@graniteymca.org

YMCA of Greater Londonderry located at 206 Rockingham Road in Londonderry, NH. The outdoor pool will be opening June 24, 2018. For more information, contact the Welcome Center at 603.437.9622

YMCA of the Seacoast (Portsmouth) located at 550 Peverly Hill Road in Portsmouth, NH. For more information, contact Annie Hearn, Director of Aquatics at 603.431.2334 or ahearn@graniteymca.org

As part of summer water safety month, The Granite YMCA encourages parents to take an active role in their child’s safety. The following are safety tips in and around the water:

•        Only swim when and where there is a lifeguard on duty, never alone.

•        Adults should constantly and actively watch their children.

•        Inexperienced or non-swimmers should wear a Coast Guard-approved life jacket.

•        Parents or guardians of young children should be within an arm’s reach.

•        Children and adults should not engage in breath holding activities.

Families interested in learning more about Y swim lessons and water safety classes should visit www.graniteymca.org
