For Stevens Point News
STEVENS POINT — Swimming classes for children are available this summer through the Special Needs Aquatic Program at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point.
The classes are for young children of all abilities accompanied by a parent or guardian. Children gain an initial positive water experience, learn safety skills in and around water and just have fun.
Four weeks of class sessions will be held Mondays, June 4, 11, 18 and 25, or Thursdays, June 7, 14, 21 and 28. Classes for infants and toddlers, ages nine months to three years, will be held at 6 p.m. Preschool classes for ages 3 to 5 will be held at 6:40 p.m. Each class costs $30.
The 30-minute classes are held in the therapeutic pool in the UW-Stevens Point Health Enhancement Center, located adjacent to the Quandt Fieldhouse on Fourth Avenue. All are led by a trained water safety instructor who is a student at UW-Stevens Point.
Early registration is advised, as program space is limited. For registration and more information, go to www.uwsp.edu/shcp/Pages/SNAP/
