Rourke Bennet. When Rourke first started swimming at the Y swim lessons he was very hesitant about doing the lessons in the deeper water.

Our Winter Parent Meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, January 7th from 6:15-6:45 in room 171 at the Middle School. For parents who are new to the club, it is highly recommended that someone attend this meeting to learn more about the club's structure and operations including volunteer requirements and opportunities. For returning parents, it is good practice to try and attend one parent meetings throughout the year as our club does have updates to share from time to time. This is also a great opportunity to meet the board and...
