Once approved their instruction will focus on learning the proper stroke, kicking and breathing techniques of freestyle and backstroke as well as overall water safety skills. You can select either Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday practices from 3:30-4:00. Swimmers are billed monthly by credit card auto draft at a cost of $80 per month plus a $10 registration fee.
