The Carderock Springs Swimming and Tennis Club, Inc is an anchor of the Carderock Community providing a family oriented center of activity for individuals of all ages. The Club has a wide range of activities including tennis, swimming, basketball, playground, movie nights in the winter, exercise classes, a summer fun program, and community activities throughout the year. The Clubhouse may be rented for special events, birthday parties for children or adults, anniversaries, and team get-togethers. The club is situated in a quiet residential neighborhood, tucked back into a wooded hill at the end of a cul de sac. CSSC is one of the most beautiful Clubs around!
The Club has 3 pools:
- The Large pool is a full size, competition ready pool with dedicated lap lanes and open play areas. A 12 ft deep diving well is part of the largest pool.
- The Middle pool is 2ft deep on one side and 3 1/2ft deep on the other. This pool is great for toddlers and small children learning to swim.
- The Baby pool is fenced off from the others and includes baby toys and small picnic tables. Infants and toddlers in waterproof swim diapers may use the middle and baby pools.
We have a snack bar serving hot foods, drinks, ice cream and snacks. Behind the pool area is a large covered pavilion and open area filled with picnic tables and natural gas grills. Members may grill at any time.
The Cuda’s Swim and Dive Teams include boys and girls age 7 and up. A mini-cuda and pre-team for younger swimmers helps prepare children for the swim team. The swim team atmosphere is exciting and supportive complete with Friday evening socials, Saturday morning home meets and post meet barbeques.
Swimming Instruction is offered by many of our lifeguards and team coaches.
