Swim

 

IT’S ALMOST TIME FOR SWIMMING 2017!!!

It’s time to be thinking about summer safety and summer activities for your children!  Swimming can be one of the best activities for summertime in Yakima.  It can be a scary thing if your child does not know how to swim.  Gymnastics Plus has a pool in the back yard of the facility that is designed especially for children 18 months to 10 years old.  We specialize in swim lessons for younger children and children that need to know the basics for water safety.

Our classes start on June 5th and run until August 17th.   We offer 5 sessions of lessons, and each session is a two week block of classes that run Monday through Thursday for two weeks.  Classes are fast paced and fun, with lots of individual attention.

Our pool is unique, in that it is only 3 feet deep for the majority of the area, so young children can stand safely without help.  We heat the pool to a comfortable 88 degrees so your child won’t get cold before their class is over.  The classes are small so your child gets lots of turns and attention.  We follow the Red Cross guidelines for teaching classes with lots of props and innovative teaching methods.

Our facility has a nice area for parents to observe classes and a fenced area for siblings to play in while they wait.

WE WILL BE HANDING OUT SCHEDULES FOR SWIMMING LESSONS ON MARCH 29th.  YOU MAY REGISTER FOR CLASSES STARTING APRIL 3rd.  CLASSES FILL FAST, SO BE SURE TO STOP IN AND REGISTER EARLY TO GET YOUR CHOICE FOR CLASSES.  YOU MUST PAY WHEN YOU SIGN UP.  SUMMER WILL BE HERE BEFORE YOU KNOW IT!!!!
