Community Involvement Program

General Info

The Community Involvement Program was created by Elizabethton City Schools with the goal of providing affordable exercise opportunities for community members living in and around Elizabethton. Currently, Water Aerobics classes and Typhoons Swim Club are offered at ECS facilities for anyone interested, regardless of affiliation with ECS. A lifeguard is on duty at all classes and practices. Both programs take place at the Elizabethton High School Pool at 907 Jason Witten Way in Elizabethton.

Typhoon Swim Club 

This club is open to all swimmers over the age of seven who can swim the length of the pool without assistance. Like all CIP programs, this club is open to the community, not exclusively Elizabethton City Schools students or teachers. This club is an opportunity for swimmers to improve their technique and participate in regional competitions. In 2018, the club will meet March through July with 5-8 meets. The final meet will take place at the Kingsport Aquatic Center with other teams in the Northeast Tennessee Summer Swim League.

Dressing room is available, and doors open 15 minutes before class begins. Eat a light snack before you come. Drink plenty of water. You may also want to bring some “water shoes” (inexpensive clean tennis shoes will do) to gain more traction on the pool bottom. A bathing suit might come in handy... or shorts and a t-shirt will do.
