Swimming Classes Near Temple Terrace, Bloomingdale, Wesley Chapel, Citrus Park & Surrounding Regions
It’s not surprising that our swimming classes and summer camp for kids are two of our most popular family programs at Tampa Metropolitan Area YMCA. The need for swimming lessons and their importance can’t be overstated. Florida is the state with the longest Atlanta Ocean coastline and ranks second only to Arizona in the number of swimming pools per capita. According to the Florida Department of Health, Florida had the highest rate of accidental drowning in the 1-4 year old age group and the second highest rate in the 1-14 age group during 2013. Swimming lessons are also important for adults who can’t swim. The Red Cross found that 54% of Americans don’t swim well enough to save themselves should the need arise.
Tampa Metropolitan Area YMCA offers swimming lessons for both children and adults. Private, semi-private and group swimming classes are only taught by instructors with certifications and who have received training in first aid, cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), oxygen administration and AED equipment operation. The group swimming classes that are available at most YMCA branches are usually divided into age groups such as 3 to 36 months (accompanied by a parent), 3 to 5 years, 6 to 12 years and 13 and over.
