Seattle's young residents have a new spot to dive into fun and fitness with the launch of free teen swim nights at Evans Pool in Green Lake. Starting February 23, the pool, located at 7201 E. Green Lake Dr. N., will open its doors every Friday evening to teenagers seeking to learn how to swim, improve their strokes, or even pick up lifeguard skills—all at no cost.

Zoning in on the 13 to 17 age group, the program encourages swimmers of all levels to splash in from 7 PM to 8 PM, the initiative is not only a chance to become comfortable in the water but also fosters a sense of community; the teen room, which opens an hour prior and lingers two hours after the swim, is designed as a haven where participants can chill out, engage in games and enjoy some pizza, according to the City of Seattle.

Those interested in taking the plunge are required to complete an E-13 authorization form, and they must present a student ID for verification. These formalities ensure a secure environment catered specifically to the needs and safety of its teenage users.

The establishment of this program answers a community call for activities that support the wellness and social engagement of its youthful population, with Evans Pool offering more than just a swim but a social setting that underpins the buoyancy of teenage camaraderie and mutual support amidst a backdrop of leisure and self-improvement, for additional information regarding the new teen swim initiative, individuals can make a splash by contacting Evans Pool at 206-684-0780 or 206-384-4961.
