STRONG SWIMMERS, CONFIDENT KIDS
This year, the Sewickley Valley YMCA launched new lessons to increase the accessibility and enjoyment of swimming to all ages and skill levels. The latest evolution of Y Swim Lessons accommodates varying abilities to help foster a sense of achievement as swimmers progress between levels. Through this approach, advanced swimmers flow more easily to higher levels while swimmers who need more instruction can learn at their own pace. This results in more confident swimmers who stick with lessons and develop a love for swimming that can last a lifetime.“We want swim lessons to be a rite of passage for ALL children, and to help kids stay safe in and around the water while developing a love of swimming,” said Kelly Wagner, Senior Director for Aquatics. Our Aquatics staff members are available to answer any questions about the swim program and to help place your child in the appropriate swim level.

Faith In Action
GIVING BACK AND SUPPORTING OUR COMMUNITY
Faith in Action provides the elderly with drivers to help them remain independent and a vital part of their community by providing rides to doctor appointments and medical treatments, the grocery store and access to conduct their personal affairs.
Annually, Faith in Action provides approximately 1,400 rides to elderly citizens in the Sewickley Valley through a network of volunteer drivers. Faith in Action began in 2002 as a community outreach program at the Sewickley Valley YMCA, and now is a program jointly supported through a partnership between the Y and Heritage Valley Health System.
If you’d like to make a gift to Faith in Action or volunteer, please contact the Heather Ochman at the YMCA at 412-741-9622 x135 or firstname.lastname@example.org; or the Heritage Valley Sewickley Foundation at email@example.com or 412-749-7050.
