The Youngstown State Swimming & Diving team will offer a "Learn to Swim" Clinic for children ages 3-10 during five evenings in March. The sessions will be hosted by the Penguins' student-athletes and serves as a fund raiser for the squad.

The clinic is open to general public as well as children of YSU students, faculty and staff. 

All profits raised benefit the Youngstown State swimming and diving program.

The lessons will be held at YSU's Beeghly Center Natatorium on the following dates: March 16 from 6-6:45 p.m., March 20 from 6-6:45 p.m., March 23 from 6-6:45 p.m., March 27 from 6-6:45 p.m. and March 30 from 6-6:45 p.m.

The cost is $50 per child, with five separate skill levels to benefit all participants.

All participants will receive focused swim instructions from knowledgeable swimmers in a fun-filled environment. Registration is open until the first lesson on March 18. Participants need to bring appropriate swimming attire, a towel and goggles (if preferred).

Parents are asked to sit in the viewing level in the stands of the Beeghly Center Natatorium.
