The Triunfo YMCA, serving Westlake Village, Agoura Hills and Oak Park, is signing up participants for its summer swim classes and swim team. Two-week swim sessions begin June 15 with the last swim session beginning August 10.
Swim lessons take place at Agoura High School (28545 Driver Ave., Agoura Hills). Parent/tot lessons are for parents and their children ages six month to three. Preschool and school-age group swim lessons include eight, 30-minute classes over the span of two weeks (Monday through Thursday). Private lessons are four, 30-minute classes. A one-week mini group session takes place from August 10 to August 13. Adult classes are also available.
Children are placed in swim classes based on age and ability. If parents are unsure of their child’s swim level, the child can be evaluated. The cost is $105 for group lessons and $150 for private lessons.
The Triunfo Y is also conducting tryouts for its Otters swim team. Participants must be able to swim 50 yards of freestyle, 25 yards of backstroke and 25 yards of breaststroke. Swimmers have the opportunity to compete in four summer swim meets with other local YMCAs as part of the Channel Islands YMCA Swim Conference. “The conference consists of novice and competitive teams so they’ll be plenty of fun, friendly competition,” said Skye Favela, Triunfo YMCA aquatics coordinator.
Swim team members must be 6 to 14 years of age. The team meets Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 10:30-11:30 a.m. at the Agoura High School pool. The swim team schedule is from June 15 to August 14. Swim team fees are $170 per person (plus a $40 YMCA membership fee if not a Y member). Swimmers receive a swim cap and t-shirt.
