Osceola County, Florida – This summer, 150 children in Osceola County will have the opportunity to learn crucial swimming skills through a new program offering free swim lessons. Thanks to a $10,000 partnership spearheaded by Osceola County District 5 Commissioner Ricky Booth, in collaboration with St. Cloud Main Street and the City of St. Cloud, the initiative aims to enhance water safety for local youth.

Launching in conjunction with National Water Safety Month, the program is perfectly timed for the busy summer swimming season in Central Florida. “Swimming and enjoying our pools and waterways are one of the great things about being a kid in Florida,” Booth said. “We want to make it possible for our kids to be safe while they enjoy the water.”

The program is open to children between the ages of six months and 14 years old who reside in Osceola County. It operates on a first-come, first-served basis, ensuring that those who register early secure a spot. Lessons will be conducted in June and July at the City of St. Cloud Chris Lyle Aquatic Center. Proof of residency in Osceola County is required to participate.

Parents and caregivers can sign up their children by calling the City of St. Cloud Chris Lyle Aquatic Center at (407) 957-7136 or by visiting and clicking the “Online Registration” button.

This initiative reflects Commissioner Booth's commitment to the safety and well-being of Osceola County’s youth, providing them with essential life skills that will benefit them for years to come.
