For children in the foster care system

We believe every child should be given the chance to learn how to swim; however, social or economic factors sometimes prevent access for children in foster care. That’s why the B.R. Ryall YMCA partnered with Brigid Coleman and Eric Robben, a local foster family, to create UNSINKABLE—a swim program designed to ensure access so foster kids can thrive by learning water safety and gaining confidence.

The Coleman-Robben family invested in UNSINKABLE to subsidize swim lessons for local foster kids. Thanks to their support, participants pay a discounted rate of just $25 for a 4 week session.

To register, select your desired lesson time, then visit the Membership Services Desk with a copy of your 906 Placement Authorization Form.
