  • Swim Lessons with Parks and Recreation

    June 28, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
    Antioch Aqua Center, Williams Park, Antioch, IL:

    Antioch Parks and Recreation will again offer preschool, beginner, intermediate, and advanced swim lessons, starting on Monday, June 19. We will have 3 sessions which include 10 class days (Session 1, June 19-June 30, Session 2,July 10-July 21, and Session 3, July 24-August 4). Registration for lessons can be done in person, or online through According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) 10 people, on average, die each day from drowning. Each year Antioch Parks and Recreation puts on 600+ swim lessons to both residents and non-residents in hopes to prevent such a tragedy. This year will be no different and we are expanding our lessons to include Parent Tot swim lesson schedules the week of June 12th - 16th in which parent and tots join our instructors in the water and begin to learn the skills needed. In order to expedite the swim lesson registration process, prior to April 21, login and add your child to the “Swim Lesson Qualification List” Under swim lessons. All those signed up will have a staff member look for previous cards and enter the appropriate swim lesson level on the account which will speed up your registration. As a bonus, each person entered into “Swim Lesson Qualification List” will be put in a drawing for a chance to win a free swim lesson session this summer (giving away 4). To be clear this list will help staff enter your previous class levels into the system which will assist with your registration starting in May. This list does not guarantee you any space in swim lessons it merely helps us transfer swim lesson levels to all who are interested. Residents can register starting on Monday, May 1 at 9 AM and non-residents can start on Monday, May 8 at 9 AM.
  • Coffee with a Cop

    June 28, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

    New Time! Community members are invited to have coffee and a conversation with the Chief and Command Staff of the Antioch Police Department on the second Friday of each month from 9:00a.m. to 10:00 a.m., at Antioch Public Library District at 757 North Main Street in Antioch. “Coffee with the Cop” will provide a unique opportunity for community members and officers from the Antioch Police Department to come together in an informal, neutral space to discuss community issues, build relationships, and drink coffee. We hope that community members will ask questions, share ideas, or simply get to know our officers. These interactions are the foundation of community partnerships. Stop by and share what’s going on in your community, what you are concerned about, and of course we’re happy to hear good news as well.
