Press release from The Community YMCA

As part of a national YMCA effort to increase water safety awareness and prevent drowning, the Community YMCA is committed to providing more Monmouth County youth and adults access to water safety lessons through the Learn to Swim Week program.

From Tuesday, June 23 through Saturday, June 27, The CYMCA invites Monmouth County residents who have little or no swimming ability to take part in Learn to Swim Week. The program, which includes five lessons for a fee of $15, offers lessons for ages 6 months (with parent/caregiver) to adults. The Y’s water safety initiative also includes a week of free water safety and swim lessons for all third grade students in Red Bank, to help prepare them for a safe summer around water.
