White Air Brush $2 00 OFF w/refills IDS' 2 Sussex Family YMCA sets three water safety courses Years ago, learning to swim used to be a standard rite of pas- sage for just about all kids. If they didn't learn before they hit col- lege, they most certainly were re- quired to pass a swimming com- petency test then. Usually there was plenty of sup- port, along the way, whether from school physical education classes or from friends and siblings who passed along their skills as the lo- cal swimming hole. Sadly, that's no longer the case. Generations of people did not have swimming and water safety as part of their basic education un- less they were lucky enough to have had formal swimming lessons. Only 41 percent of Americans claim they can swim or are swim- mers, compared to 66 percent dur- ing the 1940s and '50s. The danger is clear, especially for kids. There were 4,800 drown- ing deaths across the country in 1993. Drowning is the third lead- ing cause of death for children un- der age five. And each year an es- timated 5,000 children ages 14 and under are hospitalized due to near drownings. Parental supervision is the key, but it's not always enough. Of all the preschoolers who drown, 70 percent are in the care of one or both parents at the time of the ac- cident. Kids need to know how to take care of themselves in and around the water. For parents who aren't sure how to teach kids the skills they need to be safe and happy at a pool, on the beach, or in a boat, YMCA Swim Safe is a good place to start. It's a basic water safety and swim- ming course for kids that kicks off in the month of May at the Sussex Family YMCA. The YMCA has been teaching people to swim for over a century, so they're well prepared to meet this important comunity need. We work to promote kids' healthy, successful development all year long, so naturally we're concerned about their safety. Overcoming fears and learning to swim is a matter of survival, but it's something else, too. It's a ma- jor boost to a child's self-esteem. The look of pride on a kid's face when she's able to float by herself for the first time says it all. Be- sides, swimming is one of the best ways to stay healthy for life, and it's an exercise you never out- grow. The Sussex Family YMCA will be offering the Swim Safe cam- paign to school age children in their classrooms until the end of the 1996 school year. For the chil- dren and their families to receive the most benefit from this pro- gram, there will be apool segment scheduled for each class. Pre-reg- istration is required. There will also be a Family Wa- ter Safety segment offered Sun- day, May 19, from 1-3 p.m. at the Sussex Family YMCA. We are pleased to extend this valuable op- portunity to families, and we feel that it is important to address this issue in our community. YMCA Swim Safe is a major step toward a solution. It will in- crease public awareness of water safety and will serve as a catalyst for community-based organiza- tions and institutions to work to- gether to solve a community prob- lem. They are working with the Coast Guard Auxiliary and Ele- mentary schools in the community to offer this program. This program can help prevent accidents and drowning; it can save lives. It will also introduce children and families from all backgrounds to a lifelong healthy activity. Finally, it will help kids and families grow in self-confidence and self-esteem as they master a new skill. If you would like to participate in this program, feel free to call Lydia Schmierer at the Sussex Family YMCA at 227-8018.
