I absolutely love the water. Maybe that's my obsession with the summer time. I know pools are open and it's warm enough for the beach. The downside is I can only enjoy it to an extent because I never learned to swim.
Maybe I'm like a lot of people in the community, swimming lessons are just a luxury I can't afford. Well you're in luck! Learning to swim as an adult, as a child or together just got affordable.
The J.R. Thomas Wellness, Fitness and Rehabilitation Center is now open for free swimming and swim lessons. For a quick splash in the pool sign the rules and wavier from and jump right on Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday 1:30p- 4pm. You don't have to be a member it's open to the public.
While open swimming won't cost you, learning basic swim skills will run you about $20 per session. There are two types of classes offered on two days. For Children and adult classes Wednesay 4:45p-5:15p and Saturday 4:15p-4:45p. For teen/adult classes Wednesday 5:20p-5:50p and Saturday 4:50p-5:20p.
