YMCA staff are in the 'Discovery' phase and working out the details and possibilities of adding a Rip Current Training into their Y Splash program for all 2nd Graders in Georgetown County.  If implemented, youth could actually learn in a simulated current at the safety of a fully lifeguarded indoor pool at the Y.  Staff hope to determine the feasibility of this program by the end of 2017 and possibly launch by the end of 2017.
