Still in the planning process, The YMCA of Gloucester County and the Woodbury School District are moving forward with the planning of an after-school aquatics program for students. From the last time we all met, we gathered the results from the surveys and the outcome was not surprising. The majority of the parents and students would be extremely interested if there was an aquatics programs offered to them for free of charge.
Gathered that the majority of the surveys revealed the interest in this program, we want to make sure we execute the planning as well as possible. Given that this will be a free program provided to the students, we want to make sure they are attending regularly and not dismissing the sessions since there is no fee. We are brainstorming some possible incentives to provide the students with at the end of the 6 to 8 week session period to keep them wanting to come back to classes each week.
We are hoping to have these aquatics programs run 4 to 5 days a week, so we are able to fit in approximately 125 kids per session and we can track their progress from when they first begin to when they complete the program. As we move forward in this planning process, we will discuss our bathing suit and towel drive and begin to spread the word to our community.
