Spring Slash classes coming up

Members of The Elkins Otters group invite area children and teens to come splash with them in an upcoming eight-week swimming session.

During the Spring Splash session, young swimmers will be able to perfect the swim strokes they already know, learn new strokes, increase their fitness level and have a good time splashing around with new friends.

Spring Splash is set to run from Monday to May 2, with the exception of spring break week. Swimmers will practice twice a week for an hour, either Monday and Wednesday or Tuesday and Thursday. Ages 11 to 18 will swim from 5 to 6 p.m., and ages 3 to 10 will swim from 6 to 7 p.m.

Registration and all swim sessions will take place at the Davis & Elkins College pool. Registration is set from 5 to 7 p.m. Monday and Tuesday. Registration fees are based on one family: $82 for one swimmer, $132 for two swimmers, $182 for three swimmers and $232 for four or more swimmers. They should bring a swimsuit to registration.

Participants are not required to know a specific swim stroke, but they must be able to get from one end of the pool to the other. New swimmers will be asked to jump in.
