INFANT SURVIVAL SWIMMING

Ages:   6 months – 6 years

Location:  Don M Smith Indoor Pool (365-8852)

Infant Aquatics has developed a proven technique that teaches infants as young as 6 months old to “float and breathe,” regardless of the water’s depth, for an indefinite amount of time.  This is more than your average swim lessons, these techniques are lifesaving.  Not only will the child be more confident in the water, it gives parents and caretakers peace of mind knowing that if an accident does occur, their child has the skills to save themselves.  For more information or to register, contact Jeffrey Nichols at 375-2023 or jcn4@charter.net.
