Swimming Saves Lives is an adult learn-to-swim program for the community that is run by the members of  Walnut Creek Masters.  With the overwhelming success and intense community interest of its previous sessions in 2012, 2013, 2014 and twice again in 2015, the program will be offered in Fall 2016.
The session includes two weeks and a Sunday:
  • First Week: Monday, Sept. 26, Tuesday Sept. 27, Thurs., Sept. 29 6:45 p.m. to 8 PM.
  • Sunday, Oct 2, 9:30 to 11:30 AM at Clarke for Deep Water Instruction with Coach Lisa
  • Second Week: Monday Oct. 3, Tuesday, Oct. 4 and Thurs., Oct. 6 all 6:45 to 8 PM.


Introduction to water techniques, developed by Coach Kerry O’Brien, have been tested and proven successful.  Seven, 75-minute classes include both classroom instruction and in-the-water experience. Trained volunteers provide one-on-one support of new swimmers as they are guided through practical exercises to move through the water.

Train-the-Trainer & Social will be held September 15 from 6 to 8 PM at Clarke.
