Chicago Parent: Where to find pools in the off-season
Although summer is the primetime for outdoor pools, Kirsten Conner, aquatics director at JCC Chicago’s All-In Swim program, encourages parents to make swim lessons and water-based therapies a year-round activity.
“Water skills are built over several months and with consistency,” Conner says. “It’s a great chance for physical activity in the winter and to keep building on their water skills and comfort.”
