Continuing Education (CE) Program

 

Continuing Education ("CE") Program

 Westminster Christian School

Our year-round "CE" program lessons enhance a swimmer's water safety skills plus introduce and develop competitive swimming strokes. These are 30 and 45 minute group lessons that have between 5 and 10 swimmers per coach. They are available after the completion after one of our swim school sessions. These Continuing Education (CE) lessons provide an opportunity for 2 and 1/2 and older swimmers to develop their skills and competitive swimming strokes until they are qualified to join the AquaKids SHARKS Swim Team. "CE" lessons are twice a week (M/W or T/Th) on a monthly basis in the afternoons and evenings!

Registration requires a try-out to determine the appropriate class level. The exact class days and times is determined after the try-out and placement in a class is dependent on ability and availability.

Our Continuing Education ("CE") Program currently has limited availability!

For additional information OR to schedule a try-out:
