Learn to Swim 'n Splash Swim Lessons

Learn to Swim 'n Splash Swim Lessons
Sadly, 65 children in the State of Texas drowned in the summer of 2015, and 24 of those were in North Texas.  Drowning deaths are completely avoidable, so please do yourself a favor and verify that those you love are enrolled in a swim lesson program.  Our new lessons not only come with a fancy new name, but are accompanied with an improved curriculum as well.  Our swimming lessons will feature smaller class sizes and more training invested into the class instructors.  Our lessons meet for two weeks, Monday through Thursday, with Friday used in cases of poor weather.  Learn to Swim ‘N Splash curriculum is intended for children starting around the age of three, who can be unaccompanied by their parent.  Registration opens April, 11 at the Boys Ranch Activity Center.
