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!).\
