Looking for a weekday afterschool activity for your kid? How about learning a life skill to get children ready for summer fun in the pool? The Rockville Swim and Fitness Center offers dozens of learn-to-swim classes to keep your children, aged 4-11, active during the winter months.

Classes are available between 3:35-5:15 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and 4:35-6:15 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday, starting the week of Jan. 7. While the Swim and Fitness Center also offers weekend classes, weekday classes tend to be smaller, allowing for more individualized instruction.

Recreational swimming is available daily and daily admission costs $6 per child and $7 per adult. To see the pool schedule and find classes, visit www.rockvillemd.gov/swimcenter, or call 240-314-8750 or email swimcenter@rockvillemd.gov for more information.
