Free Swimming Lessons with an Olympian…

August 25, 2012
9am - 12pm
5531 S. King Dr., Chicago

Looking to teach your child how to swim? Well, why don’t you let your kids learn from the best? Say, maybe from an Olympic medalist?

Today, 300 kids from the Chicago area will receive a FREE swim lesson at the Washington Park Pool to learn water safety and basic swimming skills from Olympic medalist Cullen Jones! Parents are encouraged to sign their kids up online for one of two free swim lessons. Each session is limited to 150 kids. And! The first 100 registrants who participate in the lesson will receive a voucher for a full session of lessons at one of several local Chicago learn-to-swim organizations.

Additionally during the water safety fair, Olympian Rowdy Gaines will emcee a pep rally and Cullen Jones, who nearly drowned at the age of five, will give a motivational speech. Parents and kids will also be able to visit with exhibitors about swim programs in the Chicago area, first responders and many more.

If you’re going to learn how to swim, you might as well learn from the best. And the best is coming to Chicago!
