VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Valdosta State University is now offering swim lessons year-round in the campus's rec center on Sustella Ave.

They're open to children and adults. Private lessons are $25 dollars per person, semi-private lessons are $15. 

Shawn Phippen, associate director of the rec center, said the rec center has been getting a lot of calls from the community for a while asking for this. "We had a couple drownings this year unfortunately. So, we really wanted to try to help the community and offer a service to both our faculty and staff here and the community," Phippen explained.
