      Keep your kids safe: Free water safety, basic swimming instruction offered

      A free water safety and basic swimming instruction course begins June 16.

      The YMCA/JCC of Greater Toledo will kick off its free water safety and basic swimming instruction program at several locations on Monday, June 16.

      For 30 minutes a day, 5 days total, the course teaches children ages 6-months-old through 12-years-old all about water safety.

      The minimum age of participants varies by locations, but those 6-months to 5-years-old must be accompanied in the water by a parent or guardian.

      Children who are not potty trained must also wear swim diaper.
