Free swim lessons at the CVRD Sports Centre

The Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) is offering free summer swim lessons at its Comox Valley sports centre August 26-29, 2013.

From toddlers to seniors, there’s plenty of opportunity to take advantage of these four-day swim lessons scheduled during the 3 – 6 p.m. time period. 

"It’s the perfect time of year to keep active and have fun learning new swimming and water safety skills," said CVRD’s manager of recreation programs, Jennifer Zbinden. “The free swim lessons will be taught by Red Cross water safety instructors-in-training and supervised by certified instructor trainers and CVRD’s aquatic centre staff.”

Pre-registration is required and can be done in person at the CVRD’s sports and aquatic centres during regular business hours or over the phone at 334-9622 ext. 2. For more information on pool schedules and programs, visit
