Beginning June 22, 2015, the Milwaukee Y will offer swim lessons in five Milwaukee County Parks that are geared toward non-swimmers to learn basic swim skills and water safety, including how to recognize dangerous situations when in and around water environments.
Lessons are available for children ages six and above, as well as non-swimming adults. Swim lessons will be taught in age-appropriate groups to ensure optimal skill and safety outcomes.
Spots are available for these introductory classes that are offered at different times throughout the metro Milwaukee area, so parents are sure to find swim lessons that fit their child’s needs and their schedule. Additionally, lessons are taught by certified YMCA swim instructors.
Sessions are $5 per individual or $10 per family and much of the costs of these lessons will be covered by community donations. No family will be turned away due to a lack of financial resources.
