Registration is Now Open
Tampa, Fla. – Registration is now open for free swim lessons, offered by the University Area CDC’s (Community Development Corporation) Get Moving program. Lessons will be provided for youth ages seven through 14 at the New Tampa Family YMCA, 16221 Compton Place, Tampa, 33647.
Swim lessons will take place on Mondays and Wednesdays from 4 to 6 p.m., starting October 17.
“Swimming is an essential skill for people of all ages and it’s never too early to start,” said Ronnie Oliver, Get Moving health education manager. “Not only does it teach water safety and reduce the risk of drowning, it also builds confidence, is a fun way to stay active and lays the foundation for a lifetime of water enjoyment. We’re proud to partner with the New Tampa Family YMCA to provide this free opportunity to area youth.”
