Learn to Swim is designed to teach children everything from being comfortable in the water, floating, and coordinating arm and leg movements to learning proper breathing, the different competitive strokes, and diving (ages 6 months to 13). Pick a date and a time at your leisureā€”and come prepared to learn. There will be two 4-week sessions each semester.
