Swimming - it's not just for children

Centennial Community Education offers classes from 18 months through adult.

*Please note, due to construction at CHS, all summer swim lessons and activities are being held at Northdale Middle School in Coon Rapids. 

The Centennial Community Pool is in Centennial High School's east building (door D13), one block north of North Road, next to the Centennial Sports Arena and east of the high school west building.

Classes usually consist of eight lessons. *Fall and winter/spring sessions are scheduled on week nights during the school year. The summer program offers week day afternoon and evening sessions from mid-June until mid-August. The swim schedule is listed in the Community Education Activity Guide.

When registering your children for swim classes, please remember to do so based on their current skill level and their ability to be appropriately challenged.  A class level too difficult or too easy will hinder the progress of the swimmer and possibly distract others in the class as well.  Your child will benefit most being in the appropriate class level, based on their ability.  We're here to guide your swimmers to confidence and success. 

*We are currently looking for swim instructors in our aquatics program.

Our focus is on teaching relaxation and comfort in the water.  Training arrangements can be made for those interested in becoming staff and who do not have current Lifeguarding, Water Safety Assistant or Water Safety Instructor Certifications.  Please contact Colleen at 763-792-5240.
