We take water seriously here at the CORE. Our facility hosts an indoor 25 meter pool, and outdoor 25 meter pool with a zero-depth entry kiddie area. We also have a 900 gallon hot tub to relax in, and we offer a steam room and dry sauna to help alleviate your post-workout soreness.
Our outdoor pool, open in the summer months, has two big water slides and a small kiddie slide, because summer is for water fun!
Learn to Swim Lessons- from Survival to Swim Team Prep!
Here at the CORE, we encourage water safety as an integral part of building up our members. We offer small-group lessons, private and semi private lessons. These give every swimmer the opportunity to get the attention they need. Currently, Ann Taylor Lashbrook, “Coach Ann,” is teaching our lessons, although we hope to have more coaches certified soon. Her lessons begin with survival skills and progress through instruction in quality swimming stroke technique. Children can begin private lessons with parents in the water at 4 months of age. Between ages 3-4, parents are no longer in the water and child works directly with a coach. Coach Ann also has experience working with competitive swimmers, adults, and adaptive swimming for individuals with special needs.
Lessons are available in 30 minute sessions on the weekends currently. You can purchase one lesson, package of 5 or 10, or join our Saturday Group lessons (which to start again in April) includes a series of lessons for one affordable price. You can register at the front desk or email Coach Ann directly for more information atlashbrook@

Our Water Aerobics classes are a gateway to all-around fitness, and we offer a variety of classes suited to your needs and ability.
Water Aerobics is one of the most high-resistance, low-impact exercises you can do. We combine the buancy from the water with working out to make exercise less physically taxing and less harmful. Water Aerobics is recommended for all age groups, and is highly recommended for those who cannot do most other exercises.
We offer a range of instructors with different levels of intensity to best suit your goals.
Amy Gerald has over 3 years of Lifeguard Training Experience. She is a certified American Red Cross Lifeguard Instructor, and encourages water safety by actively engaging lifeguard candidates in their training. The CORE offers training at different times of the year in Shallow Water Lifeguarding.

Would your kiddos benefit from regular practice, lessons or stroke clinics? Then join us for our Winter and Spring program! We will be offering practice leading up to Summer League Season which begins after Memorial Day Weekend. We have 2 training groups, swim team prep, clinics, camps and lessons offered to meet the needs of all kiddos.
Bronze Group aka Swim Team Prep is for 8&under swimmers that currently are not swimming freestyle and backstroke where the coach will be in the water. Silver Group is for children swimming 25 yards of free and back who are still learning legal butterfly and breaststroke. Gold Group is for swimmers that
know all 4 strokes legally and are working from swimming 50 yards to swimming 100 yards continuously.
If you are unclear which group your swimmer falls in, this is the purpose of the evaluation. Children will also be placed based on age over skills in some cases. It is most important to us that children are with their
peers and that they swim strokes that will keep their joints safe as well as lead to success in competition. Our hope is that this leads the Sea Dragons to success at the championships this year.
