CABANA SWIM LESSONS

ACC is a not-for-profit cabana and therefore not in the swim school business.  However, we do offer summer seasonal instruction for a variety of skills – from those completely new to the water to swim skill lessons for competitive swimmers.   The primary purpose for this offering is teach our membership's children and those of our local community to be water safe. This year, we are fortunate to continue to have a very strong swim coach that is evolving the quality of our lessons.  


Our swim lessons program manager is a long time competitive swimmer from pre-school age through college and continues to be passionate about swimming and providing swim instruction.  She has over 20 years of experience in aquatics and has worked alongside an Olympic Medalist and a World Champion Swim Team coach.  Her experiences include: Private Swim Instructor, Age Group Swim Coach, Stroke and Turn Clinic Coach, Dry Land Athletic Trainer, Masters Swim Coach, Summer League Swim Team Head Coach, and Country Club Interim Aquatics Director positions.  Her certifications include: USA Swimming Certified Coach, Water Safety Instructor Certified, and being an American Swim Coach Association member.  As this season's Sr. Cabana Manager revamping the quality and operations of our cabana swim program by improving our swim instruction and developing our swim instructors (i.e. coaching the coaches) will be her primary focus.

Regular sessions are all 25 minutes long. Please see further below for level descriptions and lesson offerings. Additional private lessons and custom sessions are available upon request and based on swim instructor availability including Baby and Me and Adult lessons . For any questions, please contact our Swim Manager.

Our spring sessions typically start in late April/early May with Saturday & Sunday Weekend lessons. HOWEVER, we are off to a late start this season due to limited staff availability.  But once school is out, we will start our Weekend and M-F Weekday lessons (with the exception of the week of July 4).  The lessons are typically late mornings through early afternoon and will be available through our season's end based on demand.

2019 Group Lessons Schedule

Swim lessons are offered in paired levels where Group Level 1 includes Tadpole and Guppy levels; Group Level 2 includes Seahorse and Starfish levels; Group Level 3 includes Seal and Dolphin levels.  Not all Group Levels (GL) are offered every half hour so please be sure to register for the appropriate half hour that suits your child's level.  We do have 'Waitlist' enabled so if there is more than enough interest in a particular class/group, we may be able to add an additional group session (minimum students criteria and swim instructor availability permitting).
