Swim and Dive Team

Swim Team

 The CATS (Crofton Aquatic Team Swimmers) have a long and proud history of competition in the Central Maryland Swim League.  2016 was our 46th season!  With over 260 swimmers, we finished 2016 in Division II with a 2-3 record.  In addition to our dual meets, our swimmers competed in the Cameron Diamond Invitational Meet, which we host at our pool, the Straehle Meet and our Divisional Championship Meet.  Our goals are to have fun, improve skill, endurance and good sportsmanship, and to develop an enjoyment of the sport of swimming.  

Cameron Diamond Invitational

 Cameron Diamond Invitational Novice MeetBenefiting
Charlotte R. Bloomberg Children Center at Johns Hopkins

Crofton Aquatics is pleased to host an annual novice invitational meet at the Crofton Swim and Tennis Club dedicated in the memory of one of Crofton's own, Cameron Diamond.

About this Event

Formerly known as the Crofton Aquatics Novice Meet, it was renamed in 2010 to honor Cameron Diamond, a young girl and member of CSTC who epitomized courage, perseverance and grace in her battle with leukemia.  She inspired Campower -- a strength and spirit that brought our community together.  Through the generosity of our swim team families and the greater community over the last 5 years, our event has raised over $40,000 in donations, many boxes of art and craft supplies, as well as hundreds of get well cards for children fighting for better health at Johns Hopkins Children’s Center.  In addition, it has brought families and friends together for a wonderful community tradition.  Each year's event will continue to raise money put toward donations in Cam's honor.  Please see www.camerondiamond.org for more details and a link to make a contribution.

We are pleased to offer a small group swim lesson program at CSTC!  Our CATS LEARN 2 SWIM program will feature smaller groups, a staff of trained lifeguards and passionate swim instructors, clear objectives and expectations for each level, a knowledgeable and accessible program Director, swimmer progress reports, and more active participants.  Join us as we start off the 2017 L2S season on May 30th! 
Coach Karen returns to the pool to help our younger generation of swimmers find success in the water!  Coach Karen was a part of our CATS swim team staff for four summers and now is a member of the pool with her family.  She brings over 30 years of swimming and coaching experience to the L2S Program, and is excited for the opportunity to teach our youngest members how to navigate their way through the water.

Sessions fees are due PRIOR to the start of each session and can be dropped off at the front desk of the pool in a clearly marked envelope (CSTC Learn2Swim Program and name on the front with payment and Family Registration Form inside).  The LEARN 2 SWIM Director will determine if a make-up session is needed due to excessive cancelations during a session.  Each session is $50 per swimmer..
