Aquatics

Due to the ongoing, COVID-19 concerns, the city of Charleston Department of Recreation will not be offering swim lessons for the first two sessions of summer classes. We will continue to evaluate the conditions and meet with local, state, and national health officials to determine if we will be able to resume lessons later in the summer. Therefore, we will not have swim lesson registration on Saturday, May 16th as originally scheduled.

In addition, the Coastal Carolina Aquatic Association (CCAA) has suspended the 2020 sponsored summer swim league of which the City sponsored James Island Stingrays participate. In conjunction with this news, the Recreation Department will not have the intra-mural swim league in the summer of 2020.
