“LEARN TO SWIM” GROUP SWIM LESSONS
Swim lesson sessions “Learn to Swim” program will be 2 weeks in length with lessons being taught Monday thru Thursday each of the week. Fridays will be reserved for make-up days for classes cancelled due to inclement weather. As in years past, all children of members are invited to participate. Enjoying swim lessons on consecutive days provides the children with more concentrated learning time and should help families plan their summer out.
All children are welcomed to join the CSTC Swim Team if they are able to swim the length of the pool freestyle unassisted without stopping. However, our coaching staff strongly encourages children to continue to take swim lessons as well. The swim lesson program is designed for children to learn the strokes and swim techniques. The Swim Team practice time is not for learning to swim, but for perfecting technique, building endurance, and increasing speed.
FEE: $20 per child/per session.
For instant communication about weather cancellations and reminders, please send a text to 81010 with the message “@cstcswiml”.Otherwise call the CSTC Office at (330)533-6907.
