Supervisor Jim Desmond and the County of San Diego, Board of Supervisors will sponsor 100 participants for a FREE MONTH of GROUP SWIM LESSONS in JUNE, JULY AND AUGUST! Thanks to this generous grant we are able to offer 300 free group swim lessons this summer. This opportunity to ALL interested in swim lessons with no eligibility requirements. You do not have to be a YMCA member or current swim participant to participate. These group swim lessons will take place only on Saturdays.

Swimming is not only a healthy activity that exercises the entire body – it is a skill that can both save lives and enrich them. Learning how to swim and being comfortable in the water is just as important as learning how to look both ways before crossing a busy street, or knowing what to do in the event of a fire. Y swim lessons help develop competency in swimming, alongside confidence and endurance. Instruction is delivered in a caring atmosphere by certified instructors who give students personalized attention and encouragement.

A huge thank you to our generous sponsor for the Desmond Grant Swim Lessons through the County Community Enhancement program at the Joe and Mary Mottino Family YMCA.

Registering online? Please note – All interested participants must have a waiver signed and have set up an account prior to accessing online registration. When registering online, look for the name of the class followed by "Jim Desmond Grant". These lessons are only available for 100 participants each month and each program running will be maxed at a certain number.

Thank you for your interest in this opportunity.
