This is the 2nd year in a row the swim teams have offered free community swim lessons on Friday nights in January. The local pool’s Friday night swims are only $1 and it attracts many lower income families in the area. The lessons are a way that the Eagles give back to their community. Both the boys and girls teams participate and work together to help teach the community how to swim.

Congrats to both teams.
