If you’re looking for swim classes for your Keiki this summer, check in with the Department of Parks and Recreation.
Registration for swim lessons is happening this week at the Pahoa Aquatic Swimming Pool. If you are interested, show up at the pool today. Sign-up starts at 2 p.m., but parents start lining up as early as three hours beforehand. Staff at the Pahoa Aquatic Swimming Pool day there are double the amount of swim classes this summer, due to the number of swim instructors increasing from one to three. I can offer a personal testament to the Department of Parks and Recreation swim instruction. One of my children participated last year. She got so involved in swimming she signed up for the novice swim team afterward. Swim classes are two weeks per session and run $15 per session. Bring cash to the sign-up today. Classes run through July. There are shorter, one-week sessions in July that cost $10 per session. There is also a learn-to-dive class offered, and mommy-and-baby swim classes offered. These classes will not disappoint. Hats off to our pool lifeguards! And a special thank you to our Pahoa team for increasing the number of swim instructors and classes this summer! Any questions?
