(Idaho Falls, ID) – If you’ve ever wanted to learn to swim, here’s your chance!
On Saturday, May 11th from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. the City of Idaho Falls Parks and Recreation Department will be providing a free 25 minute swim lesson to registered participants.
This will be the fourth year that the city has offered the free swim lesson program, held at the Wes Deist Aquatic Center, located at 149 7th Street in Idaho Falls.
Aquatic Center staff will be teaching basic swimming and safety skills to children ages 3 – 16. Parents may attend but don’t need to get in the water as nationally certified instructors will take care of everything.
During that time staff will also evaluate swimmers for placement in the Red Cross Swim Lesson Program or the Surfers Swim Team. Those who participate will also have the first opportunity to sign up for swim lessons and Surfers Swim Team for the entire summer.
In order to take part in the free swimming lesson, participants must register online at www.idahofallsidahogov/registration or call (208) 612-8519.
