Swim Program 2023

The CBSC Swim Program has a fantastic group of coaches this year who are looking forward to working with you and your family! Our swim program offers a wide variety of programs for children of all ages. All of our staff have received both Lifesaving Society and Crescent Beach specific training, and are experienced in their areas of work.

For the summer of 2023, CBSC is offering the following disciplines: Learn to Swim Lessons, Triathlon, Developmental Swimming, Competitive Swimming, Recreational Artistic Swimming (star levels), Competitive Artistic Swimming, Water Polo and Volleyball. Members are allowed to sign up for 1 lesson from each discipline. For Competitive programs (speed swimming and artistic swimming), registration for both months is required. For water polo and recreational artistic swimming, you may register for July only, however to sign up for August, you must register for both months.


The largest aspect of the swim club is our Learn to Swim program. Starting at 2-3 years of age, children progress through a unique set of levels aimed to develop confident swimmers who have fun and feel comfortable in the water.

Lessons start July 3, 2023 and will run M/T/Th/F. August lessons start on July 31, 2023. Each class is 25 minutes, during which your child will receive instruction from their coach, build swimming skills and, most importantly, have fun. Fee: $100/month.

A more descriptive Level & Objective handout for each class can be found below.

Enrollment is limited, and registration for classes is on a first come, first serve basis on registration. At registration, children may only be registered in one Learn to Swim lesson per month. Please ensure that you select the appropriate swim level for your child. Due to limitations in class sizes, it may be difficult to move your child after registration. Please contact Head Learn to Swim, Olivia Francoeur and Assistant Head Learn to Swim Natalie Cooke at swimlessons@cbswimclub.ca with any questions you may have or to help determine the appropriate class for your child.
