Swim Team & Swim Lessons
Frequently Asked Questions:
Does my child have to already be able to swim?
Any child who appears comfortable in the water and will attempt to swim the length of the pool can join our swim team. Some beginning swimmers on the team may do better with private lessons in addition or instead of swim team. If your child does not want to put his face into the water he/she may need time in swimming lessons, because natural fatigue during swim practice will make their fears worse and place them in a potentially dangerous situation. Please talk to the Coach with regard to this. Private lessons are available from some of the coaches.
If my child isn’t quite ready for swim team can they take swim lessons?
Private swim lessons are available for swimmers of all ages – parents included! You do not need to be on the Swim Team in order to receive private instruction at CCC. Private swim lessons work well for those below the age for swim team or those not yet ready for the swim team group instruction. Private lessons also work great as a supplement to the swim team practices for those who need more one-on-one attention.
Fee: $25.00 Per 30 Minutes
Coaches available for private lessons are listed in the swim team handbook available for download!
If my child is on the swim team can/should I volunteer in some way?
The success of our swim team and swim meets depends on parent volunteers like you! We will need your help throughout the season and there is a variety of things you can do to help! Below is a brief description of all the different positions. Older siblings that do not swim (12 years or older) are welcome to help too! No experience is necessary! We have veteran parent volunteers that will be able to give you more detailed instructions and answer any questions you have. Thank you in advance for your help and contribution to making the team a success! A full description of the volunteer positions needed are in the swim team handbook.

Are their swim meets and does my child have to swim in them?
Yes there are swim meets, but there are A and B meets. A meets are scored meets, meaning the teams are competing to win. B meets are non-scored and more for experience and practice. All swimmers are encouraged to swim in B meets. A meets have limited spots and coaches will select from swimmers signed up to swim in the meet based on what is best for the team. Much more detail on the meets including the meet dates are listed in the swim team handbook.
