Reach, Throw, Never Go!

Jul 13 - 1:30pm to 2:30pm

This interactive session about water safety is for tweens and teens entering grades 4-8.

Join YMCA staff as we work to prepare children and adults to be safer around bodies of water with an interactive, engaging program.  Drowning is the leading cause of accidental death for children age 1-4, and the second leading cause for age 1-14. The event goal is to address child drowning by teaching water safety skills that could ultimately save lives.  With funding provided by the USA Swimming Foundation and the CDC Pool Safely grant/Middlesex County Department of Health, the Raritan Valley YMCA is providing free community workshops throughout the county.  Many families lack the knowledge and ability to react in a water emergency - don't get caught underwater!
