Learning to swim is essential for everyone. Swimming lessons saves lives. Among children, drowning is the second-leading cause of unintentional injury related death behind motor vehicle accidents (Center for Disease Control).

Learn-to-Swim Programs

The Capital Region Aquatic Center will provide Learn-To-Swim Programs that are flexible and ongoing.  These programs will be for people of all ages and abilities.

Diving Lessons

With a full array of diving boards and platforms, the Aquatic Center will also offer diving lessons.  Children who like to jump off the boards and are curious about diving will learn how to participate in this amazing sport.

Water Safety Courses

The Aquatic Center will be a hub for water safety courses and lifeguarding instruction. Providing these courses several times a year will create a stable lifeguard work force and will teach people who enjoy boating on the region’s many lakes to be more aware and safe on the water.

Scuba Diving Instruction

Scuba Diving instruction will be a regular aspect of Aquatic Center programming.  Students will learn how to scuba dive and get certified in the diving well and / or the competition pool.  Lessons will be consistently scheduled at convenient times.

Coaching & Sports Clinics

The Capital Region Aquatic Center will have enough space to host Coaching Clinics and Sports Camps for all aquatic sports.  This will bring many athletes and coaches to the Capital Region several times a year.
