  1. I’m definitely interested in learning. I’m one of those who as a child never learned how to swim. I’d venture chest deep and practice floating but never really learned to properly stroke. No embarrassment here, too old to care. Just want proficiency in the water and be comfortable and safe. I’m looking forward to it and hope its offered frequently.
