MINI SESSION - SWIM LESSONS
To help us establish a smooth transition from our current instructional pool to the new Dillon Family Aquatics Center (DFAC), we have scheduled a mini session of swim lessons. This will help get our staff acclimated as to where the best place in the pool to teach the different levels. We also want to get parents aware of where they drop off their children prior to lessons, where they will watch the lessons and where they will pick up their child after the lesson.

This session will run from March 5-22, 2018

Please register at the YMCA’s front desk or at the desk in the Dillon Family Aquatics Center. Registrations begin February 12. There will be no wait lists. Spaces are limited to the first eight registered per class.

COST of SWIM LESSONS
Fremont Family YMCA members - Free
Non-members - $25
