-- Newbury Park, Calif.--The Miller Family YMCA of Newbury Park is holding Splash Week March 25 through March 29. During the week, community members can take part in free water safety and basic swimming programs in the Y's indoor heated pool. Classes are for all ages including adults and open to YMCA members and nonmembers.
Swim classes are grouped by age: preschool (3 to 5 year olds), youth (6 to 10 year olds) and adults. Morning and evening classes are available. In addition, on March 29, participants and their families can take part in family swim time on Friday, March 29 from 10:00 a.m. to noon and 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
"With warm weather right around the corner, Splash Week is a good opportunity to gauge your child's swimming ability and even your own," says Kara Hensley, the Miller Y's Healthy Living and Aquatics Director. "It will also provide important water safety instruction for every age. The Y believes everyone should learn to be safe in and around the water."
The deadline to register for Splash Week is March 22. The Miller YMCA is at 320 Via Las Brisas in Newbury Park. To register, call the Y at 805-480-0309.
