Beginning in May, Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation will offer free swim lessons for youth, ages 3-12, at Ray’s Splash Planet, 215 N. Sycamore Street in uptown Charlotte.
Swim lessons will be offered in monthly sessions and will take place on Saturday mornings. The first session will cover May, 10, 17, 24 and 31. Lessons will continue throughout the year.
Families interested in participating in the free swim lessons are required to attend a pre-registration event on Tuesday, May 6 at Ray’s Splash Planet. The event will begin at 5:30 p.m. Both children and guardians must be present at the pre-registration event. Applications will not be accepted after 6:30 p.m. on May 6.
