Spring Swim Lessons- April 2019 - Stage 3

IN 2018, OUR SWIM LESSON PROGRAM CHANGED TO THE YS SAFETY AROUND WATER PROGRAM. THIS PROGRAM TEACHES CHILDREN OF ALL AGES AND FROM ALL BACKGROUNDS THAT WATER CAN BE FUN, NOT SCARY. SAFETY AROUND WATER FOCUSES ON WATER SAFETY AND SELF-RESCUE SKILLS THAT HELP PREVENT DROWNING. STUDENTS DEMONSTRATE BASIC COMPETENCY BY LEARNING BENCHMARK SKILLS THROUGH VARYING STAGES OF CURRICULUM. KNOWING HOW TO BE SAFE AROUND WATER IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT LIFE SKILLS WE CAN TEACH OUR CHILDREN. IT GIVES THEM CONFIDENCE, AND IT CAN SAVE THEIR LIVES. Stage 3: Students learn additional water safety skills and build stroke technique Registration: April 1st through April 14th Program Dates: April 16th through May 9th Days and Times: Mon through Thurs from 5:30pm to 6:15pm
