Local YMCA to hold free child swimming assessments Saturday


The YMCA of Metropolitan Dallas has announced it has set a goal of eliminating childhood drowning in kids 4 and under. Drowning is the second leading cause of death of preschoolers, second only to birth defects. This effort aims to dramatically reduce that statistic, while educating parents on how they can protect their children from accidental drowning.

Memorial Day Weekend is the start of the busy summer swim season. To kick off this effort, the YMCA will hold free swim assessments at its Waxahachie branch on Saturday from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Parents can sign up at ymcadallas.org/swim and bring in their children to the Waxahachie YMCA, where a licensed swim instructor will evaluate each child’s swim skills and determine which level of swim lessons they should be enrolled in.
