Swimming lessons to start in the new year

The Aquatics Department of Haywood Regional Health & Fitness Center will begin the 2011 group swim lesson lineup with the winter session, Jan. 14 and 15, through March 4 and 5.

Group swimming lessons are available for children of all ages and ability levels. Participants may choose to sign up for either the Friday evening rotation or the Saturday morning rotation. All swimming lessons conducted at the fitness center are taught by certified water safety instructors, maintaining a strict adherence to the American Red Cross’ standard of instruction.

Although centrally focused on the mechanics of swimming, the program also incorporates an extensive lineup of tips, hints and demonstrations on how to stay safe in and around the water.  On its lighter side, the program’s games and activities reinforce the concepts introduced, while creating more fun for young participants.

Sign-ups will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis at the front desk of Haywood Regional Health & Fitness Center. The cost of this program is $30 for members, $50 for non-members.  For more information on the program, or which class is best-suited for your child, call 828.452.8056.
