School Swimming Lessons

Each year, the third, fourth and fifth graders in all the schools in our district receive free swimming lessons during 8 days of school. They have had this program for a few years now thanks to a generous anonymous donor. Caleb's class just finished their session and Lindsay's class starts next week. The kids enjoy getting out of school for 90 minutes each day. It was nice for me to go and watch his class too. On the first day, they are tested to see what level they are in. They have lessons for the next 6 days and then on the last day, they are able to have fun going off the diving board, swinging on the rope, playing water basketball, and volleyball. Caleb had a lot of fun and enjoyed being able to have swimming lessons with his friends. The pictures that I took on the last day are a bit blurry but it was hard to capture him in the air while swinging and jumping with my camera. :)

Hey thanks for the informative post, Swimming classes should be something that a person takes up when young. Well I guess an adult can also take up swimming lessons. Never too young to try!
