Cardinal Currents...News and Updates from the Pool Deck

Summer is here! It's exciting to start spending more time outside at the beaches or by the pool. For those who will be around the city during June and July, here are a few highlights of what will be going on at our pool:

1) The Sacred Heart Swim School kicks off its summer season June 5 with two 4-week sessions of instruction from 3:00-5:00 Mondays through Thursdays, and 11:00am-3:00pm on Saturdays. For group classes, click here, or if your summer schedule is more strict, click here for private lesson packages. New this summer is elite level instruction, where adolescents who training on a club team can get more individual work with high-caliber coaches.

2) For adults looking to get in the water this summer, the Masters Swim Club is offering a session from May 30-July 30. The Club holds seven weekly practice times for adults to enjoy the pool, four of which are staffed by coaches who provide technical feedback, training advice, and conditioning sets. While adults of all skill levels participate, this may be an especially ideal program for triathletes competing this season! Click here to sign up. Also, our Aqua Boot-Camp classes are growing on Sundays from 3:00-4:00pm. Click here to reserve your spot in the class.

3) Finally, Sacred Heart's own summer programs will be making a big splash the next couple months too. Swim & Steam and Creative Arts & Athletics have swim lessons as part of their curriculum, and there are still spots available! Click here to join the fun.

Have a great summer!
