What is the Counsilman Center
Indiana Swim Team?
Based on the teaching and
coaching of the legendary James E. (Doc) Counsilman
through the Counsilman Center at Indiana University, the Counsilman
Center Indiana Swim Team (CCiST) is a competitive swim team in
Bloomington, Indiana for kids who have completed Level IV of the
American Red Cross Swimming Classes.
CCiST was established in 2003
with the purpose of providing a quality competitive swimming
experience through close interaction with researchers and students
affiliated with the Counsilman Center. A faculty member of the
School of Public Health, Department of Kinesiology at Indiana
University, Dr. Joel Stager, Ph.D.,
FACSM is president of CCiST.
Through close interaction with
researchers and students affiliated with the Counsilman Center,
CCiST is dedicated to providing a quality competitive athletic
experience and to encourage our swimmers to achieve their full
potential as they become confident, competent, and caring leaders
of the future.
CCiST takes advantage of the
world class facilities on the campus of Indiana University to
train, and follows the philosophy of Doc in teaching and coaching
each swimmer as an individual in order for each swimmer to reach
his/her full potential.
We work with swimmers of all
abilities at all age ranges and currently have swimmers from five
years old to post college age.
Swimmers new to the
club will need to be evaluated to determine the practice group.
