We are proud to announce that West Side Swim Club has partnered with the CLTS Waiver program to help bring the joy of swimming to children of all abilities. The CLTS program and West Side can help you and your family have a fun place to spend hot summer days, improve socialization and swim skills through group lessons, and enjoy the competition and camaraderie of being part of  the WSSC swim team.

Contact your case manager today or inquire with the pool at info@westsideswimclub.com.

General membership at WSSC 

General membership at WSSC provides a great opportunity for participants and family members to socialize and be part of the larger community. We welcome people of all abilities, skill sets and beliefs. Included in membership is access to all activities and events the club offers, including group swim lessons, event nights (e.g. noodle night, slack line, kids nights) and pool parties. If your family has one person in the waiver program you could be eligible to receive a Couples Membership (caregiver and participant). We also offer, and recommend expanding to, a family membership which allows the whole family to join you at the pool. You only have to cover the difference in cost. If multiple family members are in the waiver program a family membership is available.

Included in the CLTS Program:

  • Access for registered members
  • 9 weeks of group swim lessons (25min each day, M-F) (three 3-week sessions throughout the summer)
  • Special event nights
  • Pool parties at no cost
  • Grills available for use (bring your own food and beverage to enjoy while at the pool)
  • Ability for caregivers to bring the child to the pool

Swim team (requires membership):

We pride ourselves in having a swim team that is about being part of the team and doing the best you can. Since 2021, we have had several participants on the team who competed in unified events for individuals with varying abilities. The swim team and spectators cheered them on during their events. Even though they had different events, they practiced with team mates, thereby growing both their sense of community and their skill sets.

  • Inclusion in all meets
  • Unified events (25M) or standard events
  • Limited availability

Group Swim Lessons Assistant (requires membership):

Group lessons are included with the general membership and we believe this is a great way to both learn and be part of the larger community. If your participant needs additional assistance in the water, an additional lifeguard can be added to the class to assist.
