Video: Brandon Bass learning how to swim at age 28

Boston Celtics forward Brandon Bass has decided to learn how to swim and he has plenty of support from his classmates.

Seen here is Bass participating in a recent swim class with about 10 other children from the Boys & Girls Club of Boston. According to the Boston Globe, Bass is "volunteering his time to help children conquer their fear of swimming," as well as his own.

Bass grew up in Baton Rouge, La., with no real place to swim and with friends, a brother, and parents who did not swim either. When he was a child, a neighbor his age drowned, and the memory has stayed with him. So, this is why Bass is so motivated to get over his fear at the age of 28.

Bass said he plans to continue taking lessons until he is able to swim.
