Free swim lessons.

.

The North Myrtle Beach Aquatic & Fitness Center and the Grand Strand Masters Swim Team will offer free swim lessons for non-swimming children (ages 5-plus) and adults June 8-11 at the Aquatic & Fitness Center at 1100 Second Ave. S.
The free swim lessons are offered June 8-11, Monday-Thursday, at 5:30 - 6:15 p.m., 6:30 - 7:15 p.m. or 7:30 - 8:15 p.m. Participants choose only one time. Preregistration is required at the center.
Interested persons may contact Judy Childers at 843-281-3743.
There are more than 18 million swimming pools and hot tubs in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control, 37 percent of American adults cannot swim the length of a pool yet they aspire to swim more than any other activity. Most non-swimming adults avoid entering the water because they are afraid of it. During these free lessons, participants will be introduced to basic swimming and water safety skills such as floating, treading water and learning to feel safe and comfortable in the water.
“We would really like to see more adults take advantage of this free program,” said assistant North Myrtle Beach Aquatic & Fitness Director Diane Bartlett. “They will love being in the water after we help them get over their fear of it and they learn some basic swimming skills. Also, by learning to swim, they can pass their new skills on to future generations. We live by the water, so learning to swim can open up a whole new world of fun and relaxation to adults and kids. It can also save lives, should they ever wind up in the water involuntarily.”
