Swimming lessons coming up at Craig pool

Craig Parks and Recreation is hosting swimming lessons for toddlers all the way up to more experienced swimmers beginning June 17.

The lessons, depending on the level of swimming being taught, will show children everything from the basics of water safety and floating through developing swimming strength. For toddler lessons, parents must be there to be in the water with their children.

The first session of swim lessons will begin June 17 with classes Monday through Friday throughout the day, depending on the class level. In the second week, classes will be Monday through Wednesday at the same time.

Registration for the first session ends Monday. In order to participate, all children must have a medical consent form filled and returned to Parks and Recreation by then.

Water aerobics classes at city pool for the summer

Residents looking to get a unique kind of exercise can attend water aerobics in either shallow or deep water this summer.

Water aerobics offer a low-impact form of exercise, making it easier on bones and joints while still offering resistance to improve fitness and flexibility.

The classes run from June 3 through Aug. 15 and will be at the Craig Swimming Complex, 605 Washington St. Shallow water classes will be Mondays and Wednesdays during the summer from noon to 1 p.m. and 6 to 7 p.m. Deep water will be Tuesdays and Thursdays at the same times.

Those interested can sign up for an entire session ($45), both sessions ($80) or choose to attend individual classes, which will cost $4 each. For more information, call Craig Parks and Recreation at 970-826-2029.
