The Hassan / Webb Aquatics Center is a beloved and very important part of the CAC community. It has been a source of pride and joy to the community since it was opened in January of 1979.
The pool is always busy and lively! During the day, all PE classes rotate through a swimming unit. For the younger grades, focus is on water safety first and then basic swimming technique. Once students reach middle school, focus shifts to include more fitness and endurance. During the year, all students in grades KG-10 have a swimming unit as part of their PE curriculum.
The aquatics program has three primary seasons throughout the year. After classes, students work hard in the pool to learn and improve their competitive swimming skills. The first and third season are focused on Age Group swimming. Through the Age Group program, open to students 1st grade and older, swimmers develop stroke skills that they have not yet learned and fine tune ones which they are already familiar with. Our goal is to encourage in students a love for swimming as well as a mindset to improve and rise to the next level. Swimming is one of CAC's most popular after school activities, likely because of the great team atmosphere!
With regards to varsity sports, the pool is home to both water polo and swim teams. Both are excellent programs with long histories of success. JV and Varsity Swim Team have historically been one of CAC's most successful varsity programs, excelling at top level international competitions annually. Teams are well supported by the community at large, drawing large crowds for all home competitions!
Besides athletics and PE programs, the aquatics center also hosts pool parties and has daily open swim hours for community members. We seek to meet the wide variety of fitness and leisure needs of the CAC community at large.
