May is Water Safety Month

Safety Around Water YMCA of the Suncoast
With National Water Safety Month in May and summer around the corner, it’s a great time for parents to remember the importance of ensuring their children are equipped with essential water safety skills. Drowning is the second leading cause of death for children ages 5 to 14. According to the Florida Health Department, our state loses more children under age five to drowning than any other.

Becoming Whistle Worthy

Lifeguard Training is May 20

To be a YMCA lifeguard requires desire, a high degree of judgement, skill and fitness. Lifeguard training assists our staff to perform quickly and safely in emergency situations. At the Y, we annually provide lifeguard training to build confidence in our team. We want them to be "whistle worthy" while responding to an incident and to prevent accidents. This year our pools will close Saturday afternoon, May 20, for training.
