    Funded by Credit Unions for Kids and the TMC Foundation, the free swim lessons are part of an overall water safety effort to teach children proper swimming techniques and how to be safe in and around water.

    The focus of the collaboration is prevention.

    “Drowning is 100 percent preventable. Offering free swimming lessons to the community is critically important to reducing the risk of a future drowning,” said Grant Bourguet, program manager at Pima County Natural Resources, Parks and Recreation.

    The partnership provides families, especially those who are economically disadvantaged, with a free opportunity for their children to acquire this important lifelong skill.

    Registration for June lessons begins Tuesday, May 18, at 6 a.m. Registration for July lessons begins Tuesday, June 15, at 6 a.m.
