YMCA in Traverse City teaches kids to swim like mermaids
TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Kids up north are going under the sea and learning how to swim by transforming into mermaids!
The YMCA in Traverse City says swimming like a mermaid is the next big thing--so they're teaching kids how to move through the water while wearing mermaid tails.
"You can do a lot of tricks in it, and flips and like stuff like that," said 8-year-old Maeve Schuck.
Older mermaids who've perfected the craft say it's not as easy as it looks.
So if you want to get your kid a mermaid tail, you should also sign up for a swimming class.
