I had a friend ask the other day if I knew who in Abilene offered swimming lessons. Needless to say I really didn't know, but figured there were many others that were wondering the same thing. So here is a list of places in Abilene that offer lessons.

YMCA - Aquatics Academy

The YMCA offers group, private and semi-private lessons to ages 6 months to adult. They are 30 minute classes twice a week for 4 weeks. Saturday lessons are also available for 5 weeks. You do not have to be a member of the YMCA to participate but the price does go up for non-members. These lessons are offered at the Red Bud Park YMCA.


The Dive Spot

The Dive Spot also offers lessons to those 6 months and older. There are eight, 30 minute sessions, twice a week Monday through Thursday. There are also morning, afternoon and evening class options. Accommodations are made for special needs persons as well. The Dive Spot is located at 1701 Lytle Trail, Abilene, TX 79602.
