summer swim lessons
TASA provides free swimming lessons to the community through partnering with the YWCA Best Choice Center (responsible party for organizing the transportation to-and-from the pool) and utilizing the Winston Salem public pool facilities. This is a 5-week program that runs from late June to early August. Our hope is to make children water safe by giving them free swim lessons so that they may pass the Winston Salem City's water safety test. Passing this test awards the child with a green arm band and a great deal of confidence. It was a huge success and was paid for by the Flow family last summer. The best part of this program is that the instruction is put on by local competitive swimmers. This program not only teaches children to swim, but brings together young adults so that they may experience shared learning.
