Albany Kids Learn To Swim

The Boys and Girls Club wants to help the kids of Albany learn how to swim.

Learn To Swim is a summer swimming program that has been offered at the Boys and Girls Club on Jefferson St., for a little over 30 years.

Assistant director of Learn to Swim says knowing how to swim is crucial, because you learn how to save your own life.

"We had a young kid that came down here to learn to swim, but before he learned to swim he almost drowned in a creek, and this particular kid, I wont call his name, but this particular kid now is a WSI instructor," says Bobby Savage, Aquatic Director of The Boys and Girls Club.

The program ends on July 15th, and is open to kids ages six to thirteen. Each session lasts two weeks, and only costs five dollars per child.

Savage says one of the most important lessons each child learns is to never swim alone.
