The Y strives to help all ages learn how to swim, from infants to adults, we're teaching a necessary life-long skill. Our trained swim instructors and certified lifeguards focus heavily on safety in and around the water as a part of the Y's movement to prevent drowning.
Just how common is drowning?
Did you know that 2 kids die each day from drowning? It's the second leading cause of death for kids ages 5 – 14. Click here to learn more. Drowning IS preventable! The Gateway Region YMCA is here to help.
The Y provides inclusive programming and reasonable accommodations for all our program participants. If you or your loved one has a disability and would like to participate in our swimming programs, please contact Sherri Rocklage at (314) 678-0162 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We also offer 1:1 instruction for developmental disabilities.
