Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino announced that registration for the Town’s Community Park Pool swim lessons is currently underway. There are four sessions offered throughout the summer season for all different levels of swimming ability. Classes are offered to children 5 years of age or older.
“Our swim lessons have been a hugely popular program here in the Town for many years for those who wish to see that their children learn how to safely enjoy fun in the pool under the guidance of our American Red Cross certified lifeguards,” Supervisor Saladino stated. “Our beautiful community park pools are the ideal place for swimmers of all ability level to learn and hone their skills through these swim lessons over the course of the two week course, so I encourage parents to not delay and sign their children up as soon as possible.”
Classes are offered to children 5 years of age or older. All applicants must be registered Pool Members at their respective Community Park Pool. There are four sessions offered throughout the summer season. For each session, classes are held weekdays for two weeks (10 classes). Each class begins at 11am or Noon and is 45 minutes long.
