The following classes will meet on Tuesday and Thursday nights on the following dates: Nov. 12, 14, 19 and 21, and Dec. 3, 5, 10 and 12.

¯ 6:35 to 7:20 p.m., Swimming and Skills Proficiency, ages 11 to 17, $80. This course refines the strokes, so participants can learn to swim with ease, efficiency, power and smoothness over great distances.
