The Pictou County Mariners Swim Club will be holding a free trial week for any youth who may be interested in giving it a try.
This is the team's 40th year, and there will be several special events over the year to mark this anniversary. Swimmers who are ages 7+, and able to make it from one end of the pool to the other, are invited to come out and see what it's about.
Stroke skills will be taught. In addition to the free week, there is also a 10-week beginner program. After this new swimmers can decide if they would like to continue - either as a competitive or non-competitive swimmer.
Anyone interested is invited to the Pictou Fisheries Pool on the following dates to watch a practice, or jump in the water and give it a try.
Monday, Sept. 23, 5:30-6:30 p.m.
Tuesday, Sept. 24, 5-6 p.m.
Thursday, Sept. 26, 4:30-5:30 p.m.
