Swim Instruction


CCDS enrolled students in Pre-Kindergarten through Grade 4 are invited to participate in FREE swimming classes led by CCDS swim instructor Shelly Salter. This class will provide a positive, developmentally appropriate aquatic learning experience and will be held at the Powell Crosley YMCA.

Classes are structured to accommodate beginner and intermediate abilities. Beginning swimmers will use a swim ‘n play trainer to build confidence in the water and allow the arm freedom to learn proper floating, paddling, and stroke techniques.
