Swimming Lessons 2020
Headed by Wendy Yons
Swim lessons are designed to help your child learn how to be safe in and around water. During swim lessons your child will be introduced to new skills and practice them during the lesson. Water safety skills will be taught along with swimming skills. Remember, all children learn at different rates. If you have any questions during the course of your child’s lesson, please ask your child’s instructor.
All sessions run for 2 weeks. Sessions 1 through 4 are Monday through Thursday. We will use Fridays as a make-up day if we have to cancel a lesson during sessions 1-4.
