We stand in solidarity with the #BlackLivesMatter movement. We are saddened by the injustices that people face over and over again in the US.
Black lives matter because they are human lives. And, in recognition of the tremendous and unfair struggles they face, we must all be a part of the solution to change this unfortunate reality of inequality.
In Y Swim Lessons participants learn and practice new swimming Swimmerskills and feel a sense of achievement from mastering something new that they can enjoy the rest of their lives. While participating in fun water sports and games, children also increase their physical activity levels. Participants in Y Swim Lessons are connected to others in the class, make new friends and recognize new role models. The participants are more comfortable and secure around water, as they learn water safety and improve their swim skills. The Y uses the "bubble belt" system which allows students to build confidence and technique while working their way off floatation devices.
Classes run in 8 week sessions. Pre-registration is required. Number of classes per session varies.
Parents may remain in the pool area unless they become a distraction to the participants.
NO use of cell phones in pool and NO photo or video allowed.
At the conclusion of lessons all swimmers must exit the pool area to the locker rooms.
There are NO refunds. Credits can be issued for illness ONLY and must be accompanied by a physician's note. These requests should be presented to the Aquatics Director.
