HOMESCHOOL RED CROSS SWIMMING LESSONS
Start May 1 (next Friday!)
End June 19
Once again, we are offering swim lessons to homeschooled children at Harry Bailey Aquatic Centre on Friday mornings.
Please come to the lobby at Harry Bailey on Thursday night, April 23 from 6:30 – 8:30 for our registration night. Payment must be made at that time as well. We take cash and cheques made out to Saskatoon Homeschoolers.
Prices are as follows:
Preschool levels through to Level 4 $65
Levels 5 – 8 $85
Levels 9 and 10 $95
Lessons go on anywhere from 9 am to 10:40. We won’t know your exact swim time until a few days after registration and we will contact you with this via email. A recreational family swim will be held every week from 10:40 – 11:25–a great opportunity for the kids to socialize and practice their skills!
Please note: there will be 7 instruction days and the last day will be a rec. swim from 10 – 11:25! They unfortunately do not have enough lifeguards to teach the whole 8 weeks, but they assure me that everyone can still get their badges within those 7 weeks of instruction.
Thank you all for your patience while I organize this. See you Thursday!
