Westlake Rec offers free swimming lessons for adults

Are you one of the 52 percent of adults that are considered unsafe near a pool? Did you know most of the drownings in the U.S. every year are adults? And if you never learned to swim and have children, there is an 87 percent chance that your children will never learn to swim! Let’s put a stop to this!

April is Adult Learn-to-Swim Month and the Westlake Rec Center is offering free, 30-minute, 1-on-1 swim lessons with a certified learn-to-swim instructor. Give it a try! Lessons available for beginners (never been in the water), intermediate (able to stand in shallow water), or advanced (can swim in deep water but not easily, or want to improve your skills such as learning to breathe while swimming, trying a back float or learning to dive in).

All lessons will be held on Sunday, April 14, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Pre-registration required to reserve your 30-minute session, by calling the Westlake Rec Center Pool, 440-617-4420. Must be a Westlake Recreation Center member to participate. Deadline to sign up is April 13.
