American Red Cross Level Descriptions This program includes levels of proficiency in swimming techniques and water safety. Each level introduces a challenging variety of activities for both the child and adult student. A Red Cross certificate is issued at the successful completion of each skill level.

This parent-child program aims to promote Red Cross water safety knowledge and practices, aquatic adjustment, and swimming readiness skills, while giving children a chance to have fun in the water. This level focuses on developing a warm and trusting relationship between parents, children, and the Red Cross water safety instructors.

Registration deadlines are one week prior to the start date of the program unless otherwise noted.

Due to the large volume of swimmers the city instructs, we are not able to accommodate make-up swim lessons due to participant absence. If for some reason The Centre has to cancel a class, the class will be made up at the ninth week. Thank you.

Aquatics - Elgin Cyclones

Elgin Cyclones Swim Team

Are you looking for a competitive team to further your swimming career? Or are you looking for a fun way to learn the sport of swimming? If you answered yes to either of these questions, look no further than the Elgin Cyclones Swim Team. The Cyclones are a year round competitive team that competes at the highest level of swimming and still nurtures the novice swimmer to become a great swimmer. Summer registration is currently underway. The season lasts until late July depending on time standards and qualifying times. All Cyclones must join USA Swimming. A new parent orientation will be held on August 22 from 9 am-12 pm at The Centre of Elgin in the West Conference Room. Team evaluations will be held on April 4 from 10:00am – noon at The Centre of Elgin. Swimmers new to the Cyclones who have not been previously evaluated by a member of our coaching staff should bring suit, goggles, and a cap so that they can be evaluated and placed in the appropriate workout group. Cyclones Swim Academy The Cyclones Swim Academy (CSA) is a group where the youngest swimmers (aged 8&Under) who have never been on a swim team explore the challenge and fun of competitive swimming.  Swimmers learn competitive swimming skills that build on their swimming lessons and prepare them for meets.  Among these skills are: perfecting stroke, start, turn and finish techniques in the four competitive strokes, training safely with other swimmers in the same lane, relay racing, how to behave as a representative of a team, and learning to eat and rest for training and racing.  Swimming with the team at meets is required.  Swimmers must become members of USA Swimming. A practice meet with prizes for all participants will be held during each 10-week session to give CSA swimmers a beginner’s sense of what’s expected at a big meet. Swimmers and parents are expected to participate as full team members. All swimmers must join Illinois Swimming at the time of registration. Advancement to Bronze Group is wholly the decision of the Bronze Coach, based upon skill proficiency and other considerations specific to the Bronze Training Group. Length:

Resident Fee: $200

10 Weeks 

Min/Max: 1/6 Location

PreTeam PreTeam is essentially the same training as CSA, except that it contains swimmers aged 9 and up. The training in this group is specifically designed to help the swimmers meet the minimum requirements for acceptance into Silver or Gold groups.  It is not uncommon for swimmers to spend an entire year of training in this group.  Swimming with the team at meets is required.  Swimmers must become members of USA Swimming. No practice 12/21-12/31.

To become a member of this group, swimmers must be able to perform the following: 50 yards of freestyle from a standing dive; 25 yards each of butterfly, breaststroke and backstroke (25 yards of streamline dolphin kick may be substituted for the butterfly); and a freestyle flip turn. The ability to listen and to follow directions is important for success in this group. Swimmers should have competition-type swimsuit, goggles and swim cap; swim fins are strongly recommended (see our website for appropriate type). Swimmers are placed in this group based on an evaluation conducted by a member of the Cyclone coaching staff – no exceptions. Fins are required. Fee:

Platinum Group This group is designed for the Age Group Swimmer who is ready to start making a serious commitment to the sport of swimming and begin progressing towards being a top-level athlete on not only the state level, but the national level as well. To be in this group you must have at least four regional cuts or one JO cut, be at least 11 years of age, have a very proficient stroke technique, be able to read a pace clock, and have a strong work ethic. This group has a practice attendance requirement of 90% during the summer and 85% during the winter. If at any time a swimmer’s practice attendance dips below this percentage they will be placed on probation and given two weeks to get it back up. If they fail to get their practice attendance back to the required percentage they will be placed in the Gold Group for the remainder of the swim season with an opportunity to return the following season. This group is seen as a privilege and is expected to be held at a higher standard, it should in return be treated as one. For any questions please email the lead coach Elizabeth Skerke at coach_elizabeth@ elgincyclones.com. Required Equipment for Platinum: Fins, Pull Buoy (Proportionate size to swimmer), Large Water Bottle (For Daily Practices) and Paddles. Course: Fee:

Youth Dance Program

If you're looking to encourage self-expression, creativity, and imagination a creative movement based dance class is a good fit for your child. While the physical benefits of dance are well-known, dance also brings social and emotional benefits, according to the National Dance Education Organization. Dance classes are taught by Dixon Dance Academy. Dixon Dance Academy has been instructing dance and performance programs since 1994. They have been teaching the youth dance program at the Centre for 13 years. Dixon Dance strives to spread the love of dance through music and movement. Their goal is to help students become artists and surpass their own expectations of themselves. By providing a platform for performers, we aspire to keep dancers challenged in the studio and shining on the stage. JM

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Throughout the course of our training, you will be introduced to Brazilian Jiu Jiu Jitsu. What makes Brazilian Jiu Jitsu unique is that it focuses on leverage and proper technique as opposed to strength. In a self-defense situation, this will help neutralize a larger, stronger attacker and will enable a smaller person to successfully defend himself or herself against a bigger person. Moreover, Jiu Jitsu is a system of self-defense that teaches students how to throw and fall properly, as well as how to perform and defend against joint locks, chokes, and other submission techniques.
