All incoming third graders who are residents of the Geneseo School District can sign up for one free swim session. The sessions are limited to one free session per third grader.
Children must be 10 years of age to be at the Aquatic Center without adult supervision and third graders are at the ideal age to learn swimming and safety skills offered in the Geneseo Park District’s Learn to Swim classes prior to when those young people can attend open swim on their own.
Registration for the free Learn to Swim sessions is available at or at the Geneseo Community Center, 541 East North St. Use code 3GSWM at the time of registration. For more information, call the Park District at 309-944-5695.
