Due to the ongoing COVID-19 concerns, the city of Charleston Department of Recreation will not be offering swim lessons for the first two sessions of summer classes. We will continue to evaluate the conditions and meet with local, state, and national health officials to determine if we will be able to resume lessons later in the summer. Therefore, we will not have swim lesson registration on Saturday, May 16th as originally scheduled.
In addition, the Coastal Carolina Aquatic Association (CCAA) has suspended the 2020 sponsored summer swim league, in which the City-sponsored James Island Stingrays swim team participates. In conjunction with this news, the Recreation Department will not have the intra-mural swim league in the summer of 2020.
This program is for adults over 18. The team provides a comprehensive program to help fitness, tri-athlete, competitive, and non-competitive adults achieve their swimming goals. Skill levels range from beginner swimmers to USA Masters world record holders.
Workouts occur Monday through Friday from 5:45 a.m. to 7 a.m. and Saturday from 7 a.m. to 8 a.m. downtown at the 50 meter Olympic size MLK Pool. Workouts are now at the W.L. Stephens Pool in West Ashley until the MLK renovations are completed.
