YMCA infant swim program seeks sign ups

The YMCA of Martha’s Vineyard is seeking to enroll members in a program designed to teach infants and young children basic water skills. Registration for the infant swimming resource program is now open to children between 6 months and 6 years of age. The course is separate from regular swim instruction.

“Living on an Island in a community with various bodies of water, pools and ponds, it’s an important resource to offer,” director of membership and programs Nina Lombardi said in a telephone conversation with the Times.

Certified ISR instructor Deb Rossetti will teach the course. “This is a comprehensive swim program that teaches a self-rescue program,” said Ms. Rossetti. “It’s the safest, most intelligent way to introduce your children to the water.”

Lessons are scheduled between 10:30 am and 1:30 pm in ten-minute trainings, five days per week, Monday through Friday, for 4-6 weeks. Classes begin May 19, and registration is now open with a deadline of May 1. Lesson times will vary depending on the ten-minute time slot selected, and lesson fees may vary. For more information contact Ms. Rossetti at d.rossetti@infantswim.com or at 401-662-0703.
