School-aged children (ages 5 and older) are invited to take swimming lessons this spring at Saint Mary's University through SwimAmerica, a national learn-to-swim program operated by the American Swimming Coaches Association.
Session II will meet April 10, 12, 17, 19, 24, 26, May 1 and 3.
Session III will meet May 8, 10, 15, 17, 22, 24, 29 and 31.
Lessons are from 6 to 6:30 p.m. or 6:45 to 7:15 p.m. in SMU's Jul Gernes Pool.
The cost is $70, and a session swimsuit is included with the initial registration (one time only). Each child also receives a certificate with stickers for each level passed.
All participants must wear the provided SwimAmerica Finish suit. Girls will be provided a one-piece suit while boys will be provided a jammer suit. Additional suits are available for purchase. Suits will be handed out the first day of class; children should bring an extra suit on the first day to avoid any sizing problems.
Staff will include Eric Lindquist, the SMU men's and women's swimming and diving coach, and members of the SMU Cardinal Swim Team.
