SWIMMING

With Lincoln Square Athletic Club

This program is currently full

for Grades 3-5

2 days per week

Wednesdays and Fridays, 5-6pm

September  8 through Early June

Price: $1,200.00

This great and challenging swimming program offers biweekly practices, all year long, in a private pool. Our two coaches, Monika and Heidi, will train the swimmers after school on Wednesdays and Fridays at the Lincoln Square Athletic Club (located only a few blocks away from our school).

Parents are responsible for arranging transportation to LSAC after school and for pick-up at the end of the program.
This program has limited spots. So don’t wait to register, it is first come, first served! 

Students registered in the swimming program will form a cohort of their own. LFC has approved for students to participate in a total of two cohorts, their classroom being their first cohort. This means that students registering for the swimming program cannot register for any other after school program for the time being. This may change during the course of the school year.
