Last summer, YMCA of the Foothills, Y of the USA, and the Gorvetzian Familywere proud to provide free swim lessons to the community at no cost, teaching essential water safety and drowning prevention.
Children came in for a free assessment followed by free lessons, open to all children in the community. Lessons took place in a 15 by 30 foot learning pool set up at Sunland Elementary.
At the Y, we believe swimming is a life skill. The Y has more than 110 years of experience teaching people to swim. We have certified, caring staff trained to handle swimmers of all abilities and all ages. Our swim lessons help adults, parents, and kids who want to learn a life skill by increasing their knowledge, ability, and stamina to build smart, strong swimmers and confident kids.
All classes take place at Sunland Elementary, 8350 Hillrose St. Sunland-Tujunga, CA, 91040
