Free Swim Lessons for Children at the Sarasota YMCA

Coconut Telegraph

The Sarasota YMCA partnered with the YMCA of the USA to provide swim lessons to 100 children for free at the Evalyn Sadlier Jones and Frank G. Berlin Sr., branches. The grant provides children the opportunity to learn life-saving swimming skills. The Y is “America’s Swim Instructor” and the most accessible community resource to prevent drowning. Research shows that participation in formal swimming lessons can reduce the risk of drowning among children one to four years of age.  Last year, the Sarasota YMCA taught over 1,900 children swimming skills. For information on how to participate in the free lessons, please contact the Evalyn Sadlier Jones branch at 941-922-9622 or the Frank G. Berlin Sr., branch at 941-955-8194.
