Safety Around Water

Program Locations

Any of Florida YMCA Safety Around Water endeavors are statewide programs and hosted by and supported through Florida’s local YMCAs. Like the state of Florida, Safety Around Water requires involvement from every level in order to function at optimum efficiency.

Local sites are formed through YMCAs, schools, churches, or other affiliated programs.

Each site is organized by their YMCA’s service area & affiliation, and supported by the State Office.
