DEEP Swim Lessons
The Stratford YMCA received a very generous grant from Department of Energy and Environmental Protection to offer swim lessons to children in Stratford.
Children must be referred to us by either school personnel or other agencies. Our goal is to offer free swim lessons to children who may not have the means to enroll in swim lessons, or perhaps have never been encouraged to learn how to swim. All swimming abilities are eligible, so whether we are working with a first-time swimmer, or building on skills already learned, all are welcome.
