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.  

The “Learn to Swim” program through the American Red Cross and is taught by our own CSTC lifeguards who are certified as Water Safety Instructors.

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. 

2022 DATES:

  • First session weeks of June 6 & June 13
  • Second session weeks of  June 20 & June 27
  • Third session weeks of July 11 &  July 18 

For instant communication about weather cancellations and reminders, please text CSTC to 71441. Otherwise call the CSTC Office at (330)533-6907.
