As temperatures climb and sunny days provide a great opportunity for swimming and water activities, parents are often focused on safety.

Brent and Shaleigh Schneider have put their children Ava, 7, and Blake, 4, through lessons at the YMCA two years in a row.

“I am personally a fan of getting them out of their element; water is not naturally our element. It’s great for broadening them and growing their brains,” Brent said, adding that “it’s good to build that approach instead of avoidance.”
