CMAC summer swim team is gearing up and we are looking for swimmers of all ages and abilities.  No experience required and this is the perfect entry-level team; the kids just need to be water safe. We will have instructors in the pool and on the deck. During the season, every child is instructed to swim all four of the competitive strokes.  Our program de-emphasizes competition and concentrates on fun and improvement instead of winning.
