During the Christmas vacations, the “Swimming for All Children” initiative in Tübingen and Rottenburg is once again offering new free courses for children aged 5 and up. The prerequisite is that the family has a KreisBonusCard for their child. More detailed information can be found on the homepage www.sfak.de and on the Facebook page of the initiative. You can register online there. The courses are open to all children—regardless of whether they are German or from other countries. The swimming instructors come from different nations.
Between December 21 and January 7, there are almost two hours of swimming lessons every day, with the exception of public holidays. In Tübingen, three courses for beginners are offered at the Uhlandbad, starting at 2 p.m., 3 p.m., and 4 p.m. The advanced course starts at 12 noon. In Rottenburg, there are two beginner courses at 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. in the indoor pool. The advanced course starts at 12 noon. Advanced is defined as someone who has already done the Seahorse. Beginners are those who have little or no swimming experience.
The initiative Swimming for All Children is a voluntary initiative in cooperation with the Round Table Child Poverty of the city of Tübingen. It is a member of the Förderverein Lokales Bündnis für Familie Tübingen e.V. and an extraordinary member of the Schwimmverband Württemberg SVW. One of its partners is the local group of the DLRG Tübingen.
The swimming courses offered by Schwimmen für alle Kinder are in great demand. Currently, 280 children are being taught, says chairwoman Dagmar Müller. 300 children are waiting for a place to become available for them.
