Posted: Tuesday, June 12, 2012

This summer, pool owners can take advantage of nationally-renowned YMCA swim lessons in their own backyard. From June 25th to August 4th, the Ridgewood YMCA's Backyard Pool program is offering two-week sessions of eight half-hour classes. A special one-week session of four half-hour classes is also available from August 20th to 24th.

Says Job Pama, Associate Aquatics Director at the Ridgewood YMCA, "Our Backyard Pool program combines high-quality swim instruction with ultimate convenience. Participants also have a choice between private or semi-private lessons, which can include friends, family and neighbors."

The Ridgewood YMCA's Backyard Pool program is the largest in northern New Jersey. All instructors are highly qualified, trained and lifeguard certified.
