The YMCA is pleased to announce we will be offering American Red Cross Lifeguard Certification classes are the Lima Family YMCA this spring. The certification class consists of 25 hours of instruction, with a combination of classroom learning time and pool sessions for skill development. All of the water and safety skills are practiced and reviewed in the classroom and in the pool.
