This is V3 Sports and we wanted to let you know we’re remodeling! Well, honestly, we’re starting over; crews are demolishing the building at 701 Plymouth Avenue North to make way for the new V3 Community Center, a place built by our community, for our community.
We’ve been a part of the North Minneapolis community for more than a decade, helping youth follow their dreams and achieve greatness through sport and academic achievement. Now, after years of fundraising, we’re expanding to provide affordable and accessible world class fitness offerings, indoor swimming lessons (to eliminate drowning disparities), and educational and business opportunities for you, your family members and your friends. We can’t wait to meet you, and share more about our mission and vision!
We’re breaking ground November 18th from 2:00 – 3:30 pm on the corner of Plymouth and Lyndale Avenue North.
V3 Staff, board members and supporters will join public officials for a “golden shovel” ceremony, food and fellowship to celebrate the beginning of Phase One construction.
Swim Program Details
Group Lessons – All levels
Learn basic arm strokes, coordinated leg kicks, front and back floating with roll-overs, breath control, and skills to promote comfort with deep water submersion.
Depending on level of swimmer – we will also focus on stroke technique, developing endurance, and improving water safety skills.
Private & Family Lesson
Learn to swim as a family or bring your friends! Up to five people are welcome to join us to work on swimming skills with a private instructor. $10 for a 30 minute lesson.
This class is for teens ages 13-19 to learn and practice lifeguarding skills in preparation for the Red Cross Lifeguard Certification. Participants will develop in-water lifesaving skills, as well as CPR/AED, and First Aid for adults, children and infants. V3 is looking to hire lifeguards and hopes participants will consider working for V3 after getting certified!
In this class mothers of all swim levels will learn water safety and lifesaving skills. You will learn how to recognize a water emergency and what actions to take, as well as preventative measures that can keep you and your family safe in the water. These skills will be taught both in and out of the water.
Mondays in July from 4:30-5:30pm
Wednesdays in July 7:30-8:30pm
We are continuing to add programming to address community needs and interests, so please reach out to Mollybelk1@gmail.com if you have questions or ideas!
