Second grade swim


"Helping make Cleveland County water wise!" 


The Second Grade Water/Safety program invites all second grade classes in Cleveland County to join the Y in a week of swim and water safety lessons. The Y sees the potential in every child, and strives to offer programs that will impact generations to come! The world is comprised of 71% water, and we believe that everyone should be able to not only be safe around the water, but also have the skills to enjoy the water as well! If your school is not participating in this program, call the aquatics office today to learn more about how your child can be a part of this great program! And if your child has participated this year, we hope that you will use the 50% off coupon that each child received for participating, and check out all of our other great aquatics programs! Thank you for helping make Cleveland County, water wise!
