LAPS FOR LESSONS
The YMCA is the leading provider of swim lessons on Long Island. Every year, we teach more than 16,000 swim lessons and are nationally recognized for our skill building and drown prevention efforts. As a leader in teaching water safety, the Y believes all kids should learn to swim - will you help us?
Here is how you can help!
Step 1) Set your laps goal and Register at the Front Desk (or call 631.665.4255). Registration fee donation: $20.
Step 2) Set up your fundraising page and set your fundraising goal (suggested fundraising goal is $150).
Step 3) Throughout the month of March get your friends, family and colleagues to help you reach your fundraising goal! (Contact your branch coordinator for simple fundraising tips).
Step 4) During “My Y Week” March 17th – March 30th you have to complete your Laps goal! Our Swim Instructors will validate your laps completed.
Step 5) Celebrate! Join us on Friday, March 29th for our “Laps for Lessons” celebration. We will have open swim, snacks and prizes for our top fundraisers!
