Swim Lessons

If have any questions, please email Amanda Ciampi, Aquatics Director: info@chelmsfordswimandtennis.org

This year we are continuing with the Learn to Swim Lessons program we started in 2014 . It has been well received and we have found it is the best lessons program for the swimmers here at CS&T. Lessons are offered either Monday & Wednesday or Tuesday & Thursday. Swim School Levels White and Red are 30 minute sessions, all others are 45 minutes.

As always, private lessons are available for both swimming and diving. See your favorite lifeguard or ask Amanda or Karen for a recommendation.
