Hey mom and dad…. might want to take advantage of this during Spring Break!
Now this is a great idea. The Tampa Metropolitan Area YMCA is offering free swimming lessons to kids in March after a recent report showed more children drowned in Hillsborough County last year than any other county in Florida.
So many people have pools and with all the access to beaches in the area, it is important to make sure your child knows how to swim.
In 2018, 11 children drowned in Hillsborough County, 6 children drowned in Pasco County.
The number of drowning deaths in the state in 2018 was up 7 percent from the prior year, reaching a total of 88.
Classes take place March 18 – 21 to coincide with Hillsborough and Pasco County’s spring break. It is open to the entire community, beginners and non-swimmers, ages 3 – 12 years.
Classes will fill up fast, so make sure and pre-register HERE
