Registration now open for SKIESUnlimited Summer Swim Program

As the weather gets hotter, splashing around in the pool is one way for children to cool off during the summer break. Before the big plunge however, remember that water safety is always the number-one rule, especially for the younger swimmers.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, drowning is the second leading cause of unintentional injury death for children 14. Their website states that “formal swimming lessons can prevent young children from drowning.”

Taught by certified water safety instructors at Irwin Pool, the SKIESUnlimited Summer Swim Program is offered here at Fort Huachuca, to help children become comfortable in the water and teach them basic water safety. To ensure that adequate focus is provided for each person, each class has no more than six children.

The program is broken into two sessions of swim lessons, and each session costs $35. Registration for the first session is already underway. It will run June 10 – 13 and June 17 – 20. Registration will open June 14 for the second session, which will run July 8 – 11 and July 15 – 18.

Several levels of instruction, from preschool to level 6, take place from 10 a.m. through 1:45 p.m. Each lesson is 45 minutes long. During the times that swim lessons are conducted, Irwin Pool will be closed to the public. Families are not allowed to bring siblings to swim while their children are in class.

Children must have a valid swim card showing the last level completed if they have previously taken swim lessons through the SKIESUnlimited Summer Swim Program. If not, call to schedule a swim test for the child before registering him or her for classes.

To register or for more information about the classes, visit Parent Central Services located in Building 52111 or call 533.0738.

Note: Prior to registering for swim lessons, all participants must be registered with the Child, Youth and School Services Program. For CYS Services registration, call 533.0738.
