Michigan holds more than 11,000 lakes. A person in Michigan is never more than six miles away from a lake. During the summer, swimming is one of the main activities for citizens, specifically teens. Traverse City Central High School needs to build a pool and create a curriculum around swimming safety. Swimming could be a gym class credit that is required to graduate. 

Also, there are no free swimming opportunities to teens in Traverse City. Both the civic center and YMCA charge for people to swim. The pool would be a great way for kids to get in shape, free of charge. Also, the pool/swimming class could be substituted as a gym class for students that prefer swimming. 

Having this class and a pool would be a great opportunity for parents to protect their kids against the dangers of water. It would create a more engaging environment at the High School, and help students get in shape. This could save many lives. If this gets enough signatures, I will create a presentation and get it on the taxpayers ballot.
