Swim For Life

Many people within our community often do not learn the critical water safety and swimming skills to keep them safe. The Y is working to address this important issue by offering Swim for Life, a free water safety and swimming program. With so many bodies of water throughout the Wilmington area, it is critical that we provide individuals with the basic knowledge of water safety to reduce the risk of drowning or injury. The Y offers Swim for Life every fall and spring thanks to the generous support of our benefactor Channing Daniel.

What Will You Learn After Completing Swim for Life?
  • Each class is divided into two parts: instruction and water safety
  • Participants receive specific instruction from a certified instructor tailored to their swim level
  • Participants learn how to assist a struggling swimmer without jeopardizing their own safety
  • Participants learn how to help others in the water and show them basic swim skills
Why Offer Free Swim Lessons?

Because we are the YMCA - that’s what we do! Our driving mission is to change lives by supporting and connecting with our community, and Swim for Life is just one of the ways we can better serve our community’s needs. 

Program Fees
Swim for Life is a free program offered to the entire community! Program costs are covered by the generous donations made through the Y's Annual Giving Campaign. Help the Y make an even greater impact on our community by making a tax-deductible donation online to our Annual Giving Campaign
