Swim Program 2024

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 activities for children of all ages. All of our coaches have received both Lifesaving Society and Crescent Beach specific training, and are experienced in their areas of work.

LEARN TO SWIM

The largest aspect of the swim club is our Learn to Swim program. Starting at 3 years of age, children progress through a unique set of levels (Tiny Tots through to Stroke Correction) aimed to develop confident swimmers who have fun and feel comfortable in the water.
July lessons start Monday July 1st and August lessons start Monday July 29th and both sets run M/T/Th/F. Each class is 25 minutes, during which your child will receive instruction from their coach, build swimming skills and most importantly, have fun.

Fee: $105/mo

Enrolment is limited and registration for classes is on a first come, first serve basis. Families are limited to one Learn to Swim lesson per month per child.

New for Summer 2024 – SWIM ASSESSMENTS **** Swim assessments are now closed, thank you for your interest.****

To help you select the appropriate swim level for your child we are offering Swim Assessments. These assessments are optional for Learn To Swim Lessons but we highly encourage you to take advantage of the Swim Assessments as it may be difficult to move your child once lessons begin if they are in the wrong level.

To sign up for a spot please fill out this google form BEFORE 9pm Monday June 17th. Our Head Learn to Swim Coaches will make this a fun experience and at the end will suggest a swim level appropriate for your child.

If you have further questions about Swim Lessons please email Head Learn to Swim Coaches Natalie Cooke and Tobey Clendenin swimlessons@cbswimclub.ca

NOTE: Swim Assessments are NOT a guarantee of registration in a specific class.

A more descriptive Level & Objective for each Learn to Swim Lesson can be found below.
