Supervisor Joseph Saladino and Councilwoman Laura Maier today announced that the Town of Oyster Bay will offer a swim program this summer at outdoor pools located in Syosset-Woodbury Community Park and Marjorie R. Post Community Park in Massapequa.
“Get ready to dive into Oyster Bay Town pools this summer and improve your stroke,” said Supervisor Saladino. “We are proud to offer this swim program to children that reside in the Town of Oyster Bay. Swim programs like this really bring the community together and are an integral part in the training of our young swimmers for the future.”
Town of Oyster Bay residents aged 6 to 16 are eligible to register for the swim program. Workouts will be held on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays, from 9:30am to 10:30am beginning Wednesday, July 7th and ending on Friday, August 13th. If a session is cancelled, make-up day(s) will be attempted. Registration must be postmarked by June 30th.
Councilwoman Maier stated, “Many of our young people lost the ability to jump into the pool and improve their swim skills during the pandemic due to restrictions in place at the time. Now, with the proper safety protocols in place, we’re happy to offer this swim program and the chance for young people to exercise while improving their strength, endurance, flexibility, balance and more!”
