Y to host Splash Week.

PIQUA — The Piqua branch of the Miami County YMCA will host Splash Week June 11-15.

This program is free and is intended for beginning level swimmers only. It is a water safety program for children who have completed kindergarten through the fourth grade. Children learn basic swimming skills along with basic rescue and water safety skills. The program will meet for five days during the week and there are two 45 minute sessions. Times are 9 a.m. and 10 a.m.

Registration is limited to the first 20 children who are enrolled for each time slot. To register, come to the Piqua YMCA, 223 W. High St., or you may call (937) 773-9622. Registration will close June 7.

Children who attend all five days during the week will be eligible for prize drawings.

Again, staff asks that if your child already knows how to swim, do not sign them up for this program, as it is designed for beginning level swimmers.
