The Rye Y is committed to giving our surrounding communities the tools needed to be safe around water through various programs such as:
In Safety Around Water, kids learn what to do if they find themselves in the water unexpectedly.

YMCA Swim Lessons
The Y is “America’s Swim Instructor” and the most accessible community resource to prevent drowning and encourage a lifelong enjoyment of swimming.
Y Swim Lessons continue to evolve to better meet the needs of the people they serve.
Through competitive aquatics programs, participants experience achievement, feel a sense of belonging and build supportive relationships.
The Rye Y will be hosting a Water Safety Workshop to give families the opportunity to learn more about being safe in and around the water as we approach the summer months!
