Join us on May 22nd at Portal Pool
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The Colorado Springs Swim School (CSSS) will be offering a free swimming lesson to the community at their 2nd annual Learn-to-Swim Day, Saturday May 22, at Portal Pool, located at 3535 N. Hancock Ave.
The event, which is part of CSSS’s “Teach Me How to Swim Campaign” is open to the public, and will consist of two sessions, 11:00-11:45 and 12:00-12:45. Each session will hold a maximum of 60 students and will be filled on a first come, first served basis. The FREE Learn-to-Swim Day is open to swimmers of all ages and abilities.
The FREE Lean-to-Swim Day is designed to offer all swimmers the opportunity to either be introduced to swim lessons, via CSSS’s SlugBug Swimming Curriculum, or to work on refining their current swim skills. CSSS is headed up by Tina Dessart who has more than 20 years of Learn-to-Swim program experience.
“Our Lean-to-Swim day was a huge success last year and we saw the difference it made in the community,” Tina Dessart stated. “Our mission is Enriching Lives Through Aquatic Programming and Instruction, and our Learn-to-Swim day helps us realize this mission.”
Registration is required and interested participants should call CSSS at 719-648-2259.

Make a Splash educates parents through a national awareness campaign, saves lives by joining forces with grassroots learn-to-swim programs and reaches thousands of children through wide-reaching in-school materials.
