Christiansburg Aquatic Center receives grant for Adult Learn-to-Swim Program


For the second year, the Christiansburg Aquatic Center has received a $1,500 grant from the Swimming Saves Lives Foundation to help support the Adult Learn-to-Swim program.

The Adult Learn-to-Swim program offers adult swimming lessons at a significantly reduced rate. The program aims to assist anyone 18 years or older in becoming comfortable in the water, learning to swim or improving swimming techniques.

Evening classes will be offered in January, February, March and April beginning at 7 p.m. A special three-week Saturday morning session, beginning at 10 a.m., will be offered in April in honor of Adult Learn-to-Swim Month.

Registration can be done over the phone, in person at the Christiansburg Aquatic Center or online at www.cacpool.com. An annual membership to U.S. Masters Swimming is required to participate in these lessons.

Annual membership with U.S. Masters Swimming costs $52. However, a one-time 30-day free trial membership is available. Membership fees cover insurance to participate in this program, a subscription to Swimmer Magazine, access to online workouts and much more. If you are a registered member of U.S. Masters Swimming and would like to volunteer to teach other adults to swim, please send an email to Chrystal Jones at cjones@christiansburg.org.

If you have any questions or would like more information about this program, please call Chrystal Jones at the Christiansburg Aquatic Center, (540) 381-7665, or visit our website at www.cacpool.com.
