Carmel Swim Academy provides a variety of aquatics programming guided by four core foundations to help you and your swimmer establish, build upon, and progress safely through a continuum of skills in the pool. The next session of CSA programs, including Group Swim Lessons, Private/Semi-Private Lessons, Stroke Technique, and Swim Club Prep launches March 1 and runs through April 1. These programs each encompasses particular components of the CSA core foundations: Solace, Safety, Skills, and Stability.
