Graham to offer several aquatic programs at Catawba

Catawba College swim coach Betsy Graham has announced several aquatic programs that will be offered at Catawba’s Johnson Pool. The programs include a water exercise class, swimming lessons and the Catawba Valley Aquatic Club. WATER EXERCISE CLASS The Water exercise class is a safe and beneficial form of exercise. It can help you increase and maintain your muscular flexibility, improve mobility and range of motion. It also has cardiovascular and respiratory benefits. This class meets on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8:00a.m.-9:00a.m. Cost is $2.00 a session. SWIMMING LESSONS The CVAC swim school is a learn-to-swim program for youngsters ages 4 and up. The purpose is to teach children to become water safe. As their skills progress the child can then make an easy transition to the competitive team, if desiring to do so. Lessons are one half hour in length. The teacher pupil ratio is three to one in order to enhance time on task, individualization, and safety. Lessons are Monday, Wednesday and Friday 5:00-5:30 and 5:30-6:00 p.m. CATAWBA VALLEY AQUATIC CLUB CVAC is a year round USA competitive and teaching swim program. It is a coach directed and coach operated for more efficient and consistent structure for swimmers desiring to improve their swimming skills. The primary goals of CVAC are to have fun and develop a positive self-concept. We stress personal improvement. Every child in our program is a winner. “Aquatude= A strong mind, body and spirit”. This is a statement to define our desire to work with every aspect of the development of children. Children DO NOT have to be gifted, accomplished swimmers. The purpose of our program is to teach and develop these skills after all; every Olympian was a non-swimmer at one time. “Sharing the dreams of children” is the statement that drives and motivates the CVAC coaches. Our desire is to see every child be successful in their swimming career. For more information on any of the above programs, please contact Betsy Graham Head Swimming Coach and Aquatic Coordinator at (704) 637-4762 or ebgraham@catawba.edu #####
