Where’s the best place to learn swimming? Well, it’s none other than the public pools. Why is this so? Firstly, the instructors teaching in these public pools are required to have the necessary qualifications before they can actually teach there. Secondly, as there are many instructors teaching in public pools, the rates are usually more competitive. In other words, you would be able to find far more attractive prices, making the lessons more affordable.
Just over the weekends, a new public pool opened in Tucson, Pima County, Arizona which is located in the states. This opening came just in time for the long Memorial Day weekend. “Pima County is able to offer to their residents cheap swim lessons, in order to actually assist with the potential fight against people drowning,” said Grant Bourguet who was a part of the parks department. So how cheap are these lessons exactly? An eight session course for children costs only $20.
“Living in Arizona, there’s a pool on every corner. I’m confident that they know what they’re doing, so it makes me feel better,” said Amy Mattox, a mother who puts her children through the classes.
In fact, the first fifty people who signed up for swimming classes were offered free lessons. The Tucson Parks and Recreation Department also offers swimming classes. In fact, they were able to obtain a grant from the Tucson Police Department, allowing them to reduce the $15 program fee to a mere $2 registration fee. This has allow even more residents to take part in swimming.
