Splish-splashing summer away

3 Jul

Summer is here and the LMU Pool is overflowing with activity. Swimming lessons naturally come to mind when pool use and time is the water is at an all-time high. It’s no wonder that the summer session swim lessons at the LMU Pool are 90% full. However, swimming lessons are not all that is happening in the water of the Mary S. Annan Natatorium.

Director of Aquatic Services Floyde Anne Gardner and Children’s Aquatics Coordinator Kathleen Francisco have put together a full slate of activities including deep and shallow water aerobics, adaptive swim and LMU’s very own swim club, Aqua-Splitters. A therapeutic arthritis class is also available. Additionally, there are daily opportunities for lap swim and senior swim. Open swim is also available.

Francisco introduced LMU’s competitive swim program for youth just over a year ago. The program is split into three groups with various training sessions. Aqua-Splitters includes ages 9 and up, Junior Aqua-Splitter includes ages 8 and below and Aquamarines is a synchronized swimming class. Participants pay by session, so there is no long term commitment. Most of the LMU classes are available on a pay as you go schedule. A notable exception is the swimming lessons.

So as temperatures soar outside, come see what the splashing is about. For all the details click here http://www.lmunet.edu/curstudents/pool/.
