Learning to swim can save a life

Knowing how to swim can not only become a healthy activity but also be a life-saver, according to Door County YMCA Aquatics Director Mike McHugh.  About one in five people who die from drowning are children 14 and younger.  McHugh says it is the number one cause of children’s death in the U.S. and the number one reason people should take swimming lessons. 



McHugh says the Door County YMCA offers many levels of swimming lessons for all ages.  Pre-teens can eventually join the Dolphins program that introduces them to the swim team at the YMCA.
