YMCA Makes a Splash with Waterproof Paper
Christina Weiss, the Aquatics Director at YMCA of South Hampton Roads in Chesapeake, VA uses Relyco’s (Booth 3055) REVLAR waterproof paper for a swim lesson program, where the instructors use their printed guides in the water.
According to Weiss, “At the YMCA we are currently revamping our swim program to a new, more streamlined program. The use of waterproof paper in the water during our lessons will help us provide a more consistently delivered program. I use the Canon IR V to print the lesson guides and skill guides to be able to use them in the water. So far they’ve lasted over eight hours in the water.”
REVLAR is not only waterproof, it’s also durable. For this application at the YMCA, it was important that the printed guides be able to withstand not just water, but chlorine and frequent handling as well. REVLAR was up to the challenge.
Relyco is currently working with other YMCA Aquatics Programs around the country. Relyco recognizes that YMCAs are non-profits, so the company created a customized buying experience that reduces cost, streamlines the ordering process, and helps YMCAs all over the country get the materials they need to create durable guides to meet their member’s expectations.
