Our YMCA of East Tennessee has been fortunate to receive a grant to offer one session of FREE swim lessons to those who would otherwise not be able to afford swim lessons. Water safety is an important life skill that helps kids build confidence and gives parents peace of mind. Although we offer scholarships for our year-round swim lessons, this grant enables us to reach even more families in East Tennessee.
If you know a child or family who would benefit from free swim lessons, please make sure they meet the criteria below:
- Between 3 and 13 years old
- Need Level 1, 2 or 3 Preschool or Youth Swim Lessons (these free lessons are not for advanced swim lessons; these are to help us teach life-saving swim skills)
- Download the Form or fill it out at your local Y
- Turn it in at your local Y (must register in-person) and you will be contacted by the Aquatics Director at your Y once approved
