Crescent Beach Swimming Club

Welcome to the CBSC Swimming Program, Summer of 2019! 

We have 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 Red Cross and Crescent Beach specific training, and are experienced in their areas of work.


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 in the water.

Lessons start July 1, 2019 and run M/T/TH/F. August lessons start on July 29, 2019. Each class is 25 minutes, during which your child will receive instruction from their coach, build swimming skills and, most importantly, have fun. Fees: $90/month.

A rough correlation to the Red Cross program is laid out below.

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

 Crescent Beach Level  Red Cross Equivalent
 Tiny Tots  Preschool Sea Turtle - Sea Turtle
 Floaters 1  Preschool Salamander
 Floaters 2  Preschool Crocodile - Swim Kids 1

Enrollment can be somewhat limited, and registration for classes is on a first come, first serve basis on registration day.  On registration day, children may only be registered in one Learn to Swim lesson per month.  If you wish to register your child in a second Learn to Swim lesson for July and/or August, you may do so on Monday July 2, 2018 if space permits.

CBSC also offers private lessons. Private lessons provide one-on-one contact for swimmers that may need extra attention, a little additional help on something specific, or for those that just haven’t found their place in group lessons. Private lessons are subject to coach availability. To arrange a private lesson please contact the Head Coach of Learn to Swim or the CBSC office. Private lessons must be pre-purchased through the office. We reserve the right to require 24 hour notice of any cancelled private lessons.


Laugh, play and swim together! This lesson is for children 18 – 36 months old and a water-ready parent.
