Christiansburg Aquatic Center celebrates Adult Learn to Swim Month in April

April is Adult Learn to Swim Month, and with the help of a $1,500 grant from The Swimming Saves Lives Foundation, the Christiansburg Aquatic Center is providing two, low-cost swim lesson options for adult community members in April. 

April evening classes will be offered Mondays and Wednesdays from 7:15 - 8 p.m., April 3 - April 26. This session has a registration fee of $16. April Saturday lessons will be held from 10-11 a.m., April 8 - April 22. This session has a registration fee of $6. (Both options average $2 per lesson).

The Swimming Saves Lives Foundation (the charitable arm of U.S. Masters Swimming) is an advocacy group for the cause that adults should be provided an opportunity to learn to swim and to continue swimming with a Masters Swimming program in their community. The Swimming Saves Lives Foundation receives contributions from the members of USMS and provides grants and resources to programs that are teaching adults.

Adult swim lessons are not just for those who are afraid of the water or do not know how to swim. Learning to swim is a continuous process, and if you cannot swim the length of the pool, are looking to better your triathlon swim time or want to learn a new stroke, we encourage you to take advantage of these Adult Swim Lesson opportunities.

Registration can be done over the phone, in person at the Christiansburg Aquatic Center or online at www.cacpool.com. Swimmers must be 18 years or older to participate.  For insurance purposes, an annual membership to US Masters Swimming is required to participate in these lessons. 

However, a one-time, 30-day free trial membership is available. After the free trial period, the cost of membership is $52 for a year, which covers insurance to participate in this program, a subscription to Swimmer Magazine, access to online workouts and much more. To get more information or to register for US Masters Swimming, please visit www.usms.org.
