• Swim Lessons North Pointe YMCA Family Center

    Age doesn’t matter/Never too old, never too young Learning a new skill as an adult can be hard, especially if you add fear into the mix. If a parent does not know how to swim, there is only a 13% chance that a child in that household will learn how to swim. Many adults who cannot swim instill fear and avoidance of water in their children as their form of drowning prevention. In South Florida, this is simply not an option. With miles of beaches, canals and other waterways in addition to over 250,000 backyard, apartment and community pools water is unavoidable. It is critical that adults learn to swim and teach their children to swim.
