Guam - GTA TeleGuam has teamed up with the Department of Parks and Recreation to offer swimming lessons at the Hagatna Pool to kids ages 3 to 12 years of age. GTA is subsidizing more than half of the cost of eight lessons for each child.

Under the program, parents pay only $20 for their child to learn how to swim in classes that usually cost $50 per session. Classes are currently running from now through November 8 and are limited to 12 non-swimmers or beginners. Students can select classes offered on Saturdays and Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays or Wednesdays and Fridays. Classes are 45 minutes each and parents or siblings must accompany children 3 to 5 years of age in all classes.

Parents can register their children for swimming lessons on a first-come, first-served basis at the Hagatna Pool from 8am to 3 pm from Monday through Friday. For more information or to check on class times call the Hagatna Pool at 472-8718.
