Coaches Jason and Morgan will be revamping the Central City Country Club swim team this summer.

“We were approached by the Board of the Central City Country Club about revamping their swim program. We are thrilled to be a part of the improvements being made at the club,” says Head Coach Morgan Armstrong. “Along with renovations to the clubhouse, the CCCC offers a social membership for those interested in swimming and social events. If there is a family out there interested in the swim program, but didn’t swim on the USA team, summer league is a great introductory swim program. It’s a great way to learn and compete in a smaller scale than in the USA setting. It will also prepare them for the upcoming USA season, should they be interested.”

In addition to the swim team, Coach Morgan Armstrong will be offering “Mommy and Me” and “Little Dippers” classes.

“These classes will be for infants-toddlers, and pre-competition swimmers,” said Morgan. “We will have information on class times and fees in the coming weeks.”

If you or your family are interested in joining the Central City Country Club, or would like more information on swim programs, please contact Coach Morgan Armstrong at scariptide@gmail.com or 270.641.0245.
