Bates Swim Lesson Program
DARYN SLOVER/SUN JOURNAL
Tessa Hayashida, 6, of Auburn and her instructor, Ilana Meyer, swim during the Bates College swim lesson program at the college in Lewiston on Wednesday. Hayashida is one of 90 children taking an eight-day, one-on-one lesson with members of the Bates men's and women's swim team. Swim coach Peter Casares started the program five years ago as an opportunity to connect with the community and as a way for the team to raise money for training trips and equipment. The program is offered each September and April.
