Recreation department to offer swimming lessons
FOR RELEASE May 16, 2017
WAYNESBURG, PA As Greene County’s three public pools officially open for the summer, the county Department of Recreation will offer swimming lessons at Alpha Aquatic Center in Waynesburg and Carmichaels Pool in Carmichaels.
Registration for swim lessons will be held from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday, May 30, at Alpha Aquatic Center in Waynesburg, and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday, May 31 at Carmichaels Pool. Anyone unable to attend the registration may register their child during pool business hours up until the first day of class, as space permits.
Lessons are $25 per class, and payment will be due upon registration. Each class is designed for swimmers of certain skill levels. Class instructors will determine which class to place each swimmer. A minimum of five swimmers must be registered for each class to run with a maximum of 15 swimmers per class. Classes are staggered, so the same class level is not held during the same week at both pools. Some classes may be combined or canceled due to enrollment. Refunds will only be given if the Department of Recreation cancels a class.
The class levels are as follows:
Parent and Child Aquatics for parents and children ages 6 months to 3 years
Pre-School Aquatics for ages 4 to 5
Level 1, Introduction to Water Skills
Level 2, Fundamental Aquatic Skills
Level 3, Stroke Development
