Recreational and Lap Swimming
|About the Williams Natatorium|
Cranbrook Schools is recognized nationally for the superior quality of its academic and athletic programs. As student population and participation in athletics grew in the mid 1990s, so did the need for a natatorium to accommodate competitive and recreational swimmers at all levels. Cranbrook's Architectural Advisory Council selected architects Tod Williams and Billie Tsien to design the Williams Natatorium.
Private lessons are available for adults and children of all levels and abilities.
Start with an occasional lesson or set up a regular weekly routine for more rapid improvement or conditioning. Whether it's your first time in the water, or if you're an avid swimmer, private instruction can help you achieve your swimming goals.
