100 Mile Swim Club
Think you can swim from ETSU to Knoxville?  It's 100 miles and if you do, you'll become a part of the 100 mile club and get a t-shirt you can show off to friends and family!
How do you sign up?  It's easy, next time you're swimming laps at the CPA pool, go over to the100 mile bulletin board and fill out a blank laps form.  From there, all you'll need to do is write down the date and the number of laps you swam; we'll do the math for you and keep track of how many miles you've swam.
For more information on the 100 mile swim club, click here.

What is Water Babies?

  •  Water Babies is a swim class for children from the ages of 6 months to 32 months old. It is a chance for parents and their child to bond and explore the water together. The class will consist of various exercises and learning opportunities for both the parents and their child. We will explore the water and how to feel comfortable in it. We'll also learn how to move our arms and legs in the water and how to get our faces wet! Each child will need to have an adult in the water with them at all times.   The class will consist of 8 twenty minute lessons over a four week span.
