Swim Lessons

Canterbury Recreation Association's Hatchlings swim development program is designed for children ages 3 and up and covers a skill continuum from beginners through swim team levels. The program focus is to teach 30 specific skills across three defined and progressive level, led by certified swim instructors.  

COMFORT is designed for our youngest Crocs and is aimed at building both comfort and confidence in the water.

SWIM is for designed for those swimmers who are comfortable in the water (putting their head under, etc.), but can not yet swim independently.  

STROKE (our most advanced level) is designed for those swimmers who can swim independently and desire to learn the 4 swim strokes.  Swimmers from this program transition to the swim team (and often can participate in at least 1 meet during the season!)
