We firmly believe that everyone deserves to carry the life-saving skill of knowing how to swim. Our promise is to provide the highest-quality swim instruction from professional and friendly staff, making our community safer with each person who learns to swim. CSA is our community’s welcoming facility designed with your family in mind, offering exceptional programming for all ages and all abilities. With safety as our top priority, families can trust that children are safe while they have fun and grow their confidence in the water. Swimming is for everyone and everyone belongs at CSA.
The Carmel Swim Academy offers a variety of options for your family! CSA’s proprietary curriculum features lessons for infants and children ages six months and older, as well as for teens and adults. Lessons are separated into specific tracks based on both a swimmer’s age and ability level to best meet their individual needs. From an ADA-compliant lift into the pool, to accessible locker rooms, to private lessons, we ensure that swimming is for all with our adaptive aquatic options.
