KC, City of Kilgore offering swim lessons this summer

The City of Kilgore and Kilgore College have entered into a partnership to offer swim lessons this summer.

“Swim lessons at the city pool have been a long-standing tradition in Kilgore. And we certainly aren’t going to let a little construction bring an end to that tradition,” said City Manager Josh Selleck.

Due to the city pool being under renovation, swim lessons will be held at the Parks Fitness Center on the Kilgore campus. As they have been in the past, certified instructors will conduct the lessons.

Lessons are to be held during six weeks throughout the summer and each week will have four time slots to choose from. The first week for swim lessons is June 11 through June 15.

“We are excited to partner with the city and have summer swim lessons at Parks Fitness Center. Being a good community partner is something we strive for at Kilgore College,” said Blake McCrary, Parks Fitness Center manager.

Lessons are also offered the weeks of June 18-22; June 25-29; July 9-13; July 16-20; and July 23-27.

Times for the lessons are 10:15 a.m. to 11:15 a.m.; 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.; 1 p.m. to 2 p.m.; and 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.
