No Cost Community Swim Lessons (Sat. Jul 26, 2014 9:00 am)

Greater Peoria Family YMCA, 7000 Fleming Ln, Peoria, IL 61615

No-Cost Community Swim Lessons

On Saturday July 26, the Greater Peoria Family YMCA (located off of Willow Knolls between Allen and University) is offering its two annual Community Swim Lessons. This program is no charge community participants and members.


The no-cost swim lessons for adults and youth are an effort to get community members familiar with swimming basics. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, about one in five people who die from drowning are children age 14 and younger.


“This is an incredible, ageless outreach program that opens doors to community members,” said Brian Points, YMCA Swim Team Coach. “We don’t require participants be children and we accept all ages. We would rather prevent drownings than prevent entry to our program.”


Swimming is a life skill that many residents do not have the means to learn. Participants will have the opportunity to learn basic water safety and skills in the clinic. Check in and arrivals begins at 9:00 a.m. and the lesson will begin approximately at 9:30 a.m.


“The value of this program knows no bounds. If we are able to provide safety skills, swimming skills, and a little bit of fun along the way, the Peoria Y is providing countless good to our community,” Points said.


Call to register at the membership desk. Preregistration is required. Parent or guardian must accompany the child to the lesson.
