The SaddleBrooke Swim Club is offering its 18th free Let’s Swim clinic!
There will be six sessions on Wednesdays and Fridays from March 1 through March 17 from 10 to 11 a.m. at the DesertView pool.
You have all seen the articles of the many 80- and 90-year-olds who are swimming with the Swim Club! Why? It is the best activity for seniors who want to live a long, active life. Swimming develops strength, flexibility, aerobic conditioning, and rehabilitation of injuries. The best time to start is now!
The Let’s Swim clinic focuses on improving stroke technique and conditioning in a fun, supportive environment. It is designed to give residents who would like to start lap swimming for exercise the skills and endurance to make that a reality. Participants should be able to safely swim one length of the pool and plan to attend all six sessions. The six progressive classes that make up the clinic are taught by certified coaches or instructors with many years of experience. Student/teacher ratios are kept low (4:1) to focus on individual progress. There is never any cost or obligation associated with these clinics.
If you don’t know how to swim, the Swim Club will be offering an Adult Learn to Swim class in April that will teach the basics (more info to come).
