Red Bank, NJ – As part of their ongoing commitment to water safety, The Community YMCA is pleased to offer Learn-to-Swim Week, a national YMCA initiative for first-time swimmers in the community.  Aimed at participants with little or no swimming experience, this 5-day program introduces them to the aquatic environment, teaches basic learn-to-swim skills, and increases water awareness for the participants and their families. With the summer fast approaching, the Y is committed to helping children, families and all residents feel safe in and around water.
