Carver Center Swim Team Clinic

This program focuses on drills to enhance proper technique and to prevent injuries during endurance training, starts and turns. We practice for faster finishes, pacing training for specific strokes and events. Participants are introduced to multiple types of training in water and out. Dry-land training may consist of stretching and proper positioning.

Lifeguard & CPR Classes

The Carver Center provides entry-level participants the knowledge and skills to prevent, recognize and respond to aquatic emergencies and to provide care for breathing and cardiac emergencies, injuries and sudden illnesses until EMS personnel take over.

Learn the latest safety and rescue techniques from experienced instructors, and develop skills to use for a lifetime. As a student, you will develop skills that will not only help you stay safe and help others enjoy the water safely, but also help you begin, or advance, your career.
