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.

New Procedures for COVID-19 Safety:

                     -          Levels 1-3 will require an adult per child to be in the water with them to assist their swimmer manually while the WSI gives    
                                instruction and guidance from the pool deck.
Levels 1-3 will have the pool divided into 6 quadrants in which each will have a set of diving toys which will be sterilized after
                                each use (families are welcome to bring their own diving toys if preferred).
Levels 4-6 will have swimmers in the pool independently while the WSI gives instruction from the pool deck.
              *Levels 5 & 6 is the recommended option for swimmers who would have participated in the Swim Team’s 8 & Unders.

                -          All class sizes will be limited and sign-ups will be on a first-come, first-serve basis

                             -          Levels 1-3: no more than 6 adult/child pairs per session

SWIM LESSON LEVEL PLACEMENT TESTING:                                                               

We will not be offering an Orientation Celebration this year, but if you have any questions or concerns about the level of your swimmer, please call the front office to set up a time to meet with one of our WSIs and they can assess your child’s ability for placement into the most appropriate level.

Shallow End:

         Level I (Water Exploration) – Teaches children with no previous swimming experience water adjustment and basic supported swimming skills
         Level II (Primary Skills) – Emphasizes underwater exploration, unsupported locomotion, front and back combined stroke and jumping into the
                water without help. 
         Level III (Stroke Readiness) – Teaches front crawl, diving, elementary backstroke and back crawl.
         Level IV (Stroke Development) – Teaches side-stroke and breast-stroke, stressing form, coordination and endurance
Deep End:       
Level V and VI (Stroke Development, Personal Water Safety, Fitness Swimmer) – Teaches butterfly kick, underwater swimming skills and
                mastery of stroke skills. This level emphasizes on distance swimming, turns and surface dives.  It also promotes endurance swimming,
                culminating in a continuous 500-yard swim to complete class. 

-          *This is the recommended option for swimmers who would have participated in the Swim Team’s 8 & Unders.
