Due to its great demand by Roosevelt Island parents, the Roosevelt Island Operating Corp (RIOC) has added more Toddler Swimming Classes at Sportspark. According to RIOC:
Due to an increase in demand, an additional Mommy and Me swim class has been added to the current schedule at the Sportspark facility (250 Main Street). In addition to the 11 AM AND 11:30 AM class on Sundays, a 10:30 AM class will also be offered with a class limit of 13 parents beginning Sunday, July 21st. Participants are encouraged to arrive early to sign-up for each class. In the interim, RIOC is working on new registration procedures which will include pre-registration and varied rates for residents and non-residents. A notification will be provided once the new policy is implemented.

Many thanks to Dr. Eva Bosbach for making this happen. If any governor cares about this wonderful rock in the middle of the East River, then he/she should appoint Eva to the management of Roosevelt Island!
