Just in time for spring break, LOGAN Child & Adolescent Services will be offering free group swimming lessons at the YMCA in South Bend. The classes, taught by certified swim instructors, begin Feb. 26 and continue for seven weeks. A Registered Behavior Technician from LOGAN will assist with the lessons, and additional lifeguards will be on duty. Two classes will be offered, Swim Starters for 2- and 3-year-olds and Swim Basics for 3- to 12-year-olds.
In Swim Starters, toddlers will learn to be comfortable in the water and develop swim readiness. A parent must go in the water with each child.
In Swim Basics, children will learn personal water safety and build basic swimming competency. A parent must be present but is not expected to go in the water.
These classes are made possible by a grant from Autism Speaks!
Call Megan Drzewiecki, LOGAN Child and Adolescent Services Manager, at 574-289-4831, to register your child. Classes are limited to 15 children, so don’t wait. A $10 deposit must be received before a spot will be assigned, but the deposit will be returned upon completion of lessons.
