Covid19 Update Fall 2020 - Classes coming soon! 

Although we are not currently in session, we are actively planning! We will be offering small, semi-private classes beginning soon.  We will accommodate children in the same family who are at different swim levels at the same class time. Instruction will be individualized.  A parent or designated adult will be required to be in the water for children who cannot swim on their own. A survey was sent out recently.  If you did not receive the survey please contact us! 

Call Erin at 419-243-7255 or email: swim@CatholicClub.org for more information.  

Ages
6 month – adult

Sessions
4 weeks long with ½-hour lesson each week

Cost
$30.00 per 4 week session
Scholarships are available

Each lesson is taught by a qualified swim instructor/lifeguard.  Some class levels have prerequisite skills required. An instructor will assist you if you are unsure which level to register your child in. We reserve the right to change your child’s placement after the first class if we determine that he/she is registered into the wrong level. Your child will receive a certificate at the end of each session to advise you of the level that he/she will be in for the next session. Please be aware that most children require many sessions at the same level to learn all skills that it takes to move to the next level of classes.

Payment must be made at the time of registration. We ask that you register at least one week before classes are scheduled to start so that we can properly plan our classes and instructors. 

Classes with less than two registered will be combined with another class or canceled. Classes will always be held the first week before a determination will be made to combine or cancel.

A parent or designated responsible adult must remain in the building during the child’s swim lesson, and supervise young children in the locker-room. You may never simply drop your child off for his/her lesson. You or a designated adult must remain in the building for the duration of the lesson.

"I wouldn't send my kids anywhere else or recommend anywhere else!  I feel like I have a great relationship with the teachers; they are very hands on, very attentive overall and I trust them with my children!  The Catholic Club also offers swim lessons which I think is awesome!"
