LEARN TO SWIM

Program Chairs:  Lion Laura Anthony & Leslie Franzen

Lessons will be at the Fort Casey Pool this year again.

The Club has been providing swimming lessons for the children of  Whidbey Island for over 50 years! This is one of our longest community service projects and has become an important tradition in our Club and the community. Every year we train between 100-200 young people to be safe swimmers, so important when you live on an island! We are now teaching children whose parents went through our swim program and many of our teen-age instructors learned to swim with the Lions when they were young!

Pool watchers help with pool safety, i.e. enforcing the no-running and no-pets rule, and gently guiding parents away from the pool to behind the guard rail. This also ensures we are good pool stewards so we will be invited back to the pool next year!  The Lions also provide healthy snacks (muffins, juice, fruit, granola bars) for the swim instructors who are in the pool all morning. If you are able to provide some snacks for one of the swim days, please let her know and “save the dates” of the lessons so you can sign up to be a pool watcher. Let’s all work together to train another batch of water-safe kids!
