ATTENTION:

 

All swim lessons are currently on hold due to COVID 19. We hope to be able to resume them in the near future. 

SWIM LESSONS

The Central-Clemson Recreation center offers a progressive learn- to- swim program starting with toddlers and ending with adults. Our approach to swimming is to expose children to the water during their younger years when fear of the water is less of a distraction and keep them swimming into their adult years. Our goal is to develop proficient swimmers of all ages, reduce the fear of water and educate on the dangers associated with open waters.
