‘Pay What You Can’ for Kids to Learn to Swim at Evergreen Aquatic Center
Our friends at the Evergreen Community Aquatic Center in White Center want our Readers to know that they’re offering a ‘Pay Only What You Can’ special from April 17 through May 23.
“Kids can plunge into spring this year with quality swim instruction and water safety lessons at the Evergreen Community Aquatic Center in White Center,” reads a statement.
Whitewater Aquatics Management says that they will teach any child who wants to learn to swim and have fun safely in the water – regardless of their ability to pay – from April 17 through May 23.
A non-profit pool, ECAC and Whitewater Aquatics Management asks only that parents pay what they can afford, even if it’s nothing, for their kids to participate in this special community session.
“And if you can pay and can also help other families who can’t, we thank you for your donation and the much needed assistance in giving more kids this springtime swimming opportunity,” they added.
Not only will the lessons help children enjoy swimming but will also aid in the prevention of drowning, the second leading cause of death in children.
While an eight-session lesson block usually costs $72, no one will be turned away because of cost.
But space is limited. To take advantage of the reduced rate, please sign up in person at Evergreen Community Aquatic Center on a weekday between 4:00 and 8 p.m. – as soon as you can to ensure your child’s space.
Lessons will take place twice a week, Monday and Wednesday or Tuesday and Thursday, between 4 and 6 p.m for 30 minutes per class.
About Evergreen Community Aquatic Center
The Evergreen Community Aquatic Center, formerly Evergreen Pool, is located at 606 SW 116th Street in unincorporated area of King County. Built in the 1960’s as part of the forward thrust bond initiative, the pool was shuttered by King County. Non-profit Whitewater Aquatics re-opened the facility with funds raised from the private sector and now leases the pool from The Highline School District.
