Marco YMCA offers swim classes at many levels
The Greater Marco Family YMCA mission for water safety is to have classes available for all to learn how to swim from ages six months to adults. They include Parent & Child, Preschool and Youth Swim lesson levels.
Swim lessons encourage self-awareness and self-confidence. Lessons boost learning and education and improve swim skills, strength and endurance. Together, these benefits improve students’ overall wellness and social skills. There will be a special Pike/Eel Swim session offered from Sept. 2 to Sept. 12, from 10:45 to 11:15 a.m.
The program fee is $75 for Marco YMCA members and $95 for community participants.
Regular classes meet during the last two weeks of the month, with the next series scheduled for Sept. 23 to Oct. 3. Swim lessons will be scheduled during the months of October and into the month of November.
Class times are as scheduled:
Pike/Eel, 4 to 4:30 p.m.; Polliwog/Guppy, 4:45 to 5:30 p.m.; Parent/Child, 5:45 to 6:15 p.m. Class fees are $75 for Marco YMCA members and $95 for community participants.
Private swim lessons are also available with single or six-lesson plans.
