CSC is the place to be all summer long.


It feels like we were just celebrating our successful 2018 season! We are excited to get back on the pool deck and get started on a new season, full of fun and making new memories!

As you know, the swim season is a rush of emails with a lot of information. To that end, communication is paramount to making this the best season yet.  Please ensure that the email address listed on the registration form is current and checked often.  This will be the best way to check for updates.  

Our goal at Cranbrook Swim Club is to provide opportunity and encouragement for each swimmer to fully develop her or his potential. We strive to achieve this goal through intergrity, commitment, teamwork and sportsmanship; which as we know are fundamental to the pursuit of personal excellence. 

Go Dolphins!!!

Swim Lessons at CSC

Private lessons are available with team coaches, certified lifeguards, and managers. FOR ALL SWIM LESSONS, please contact club MANAGEMENT by phone to schedule.

Adult Lap Swim

We will be offering lap swim time daily, with the exception of home meet days, from 6:30PM-7:30PM.  We are not offering morning lap swim. There is a BHC  tri team that swims on Friday mornings at 5am. Contact the club for details. 


Swim Team Information


SWIM TEAM is for those swimmers who can swim 2 full lengths in 2 competitive strokes.  It does not have to be pretty or perfect - they just have to be able to get across the pool.  If they aren't ready, consider our JUNIOR DOLPHINS, formerly know as pre-team. If you are not certain whether your swimmer belongs on the team or Junior Dolphins, please bring your child between 5:00-5:30pm after May 21st, or have your child attend a Junior Dolphin practice, (5:00 - 5:30), after May 29th and coaches will assess and advise.  

(Registration for team and Junior Dolphins is the same.)

 Please contact the swim chairs with any questions about swim team at: .
