Our sponsors go above and beyond for the club. In addition to providing discounts to our members, the club relies on these businesses for its general programming. These sponsors actively promote the club and help keep our members informed by speaking at monthly meetings, hosting clinics for the Newbie Program, and/or providing significant CTC discounts on their general programs! Thank them for all the support they give the club by paying them a visit!
Chicago Blue Dolphins (CBD) is an aquatic fitness business delivering state-of-the-art swim instruction and training programs. Since our founding in 2003, providing swim-leg support for triathletes has been at the center of our business; our support comes in the form of instruction and group swim training programs. For those looking to improve their general swimming and open water swim technique, CBD offers private and semi-private lessons, small group, larger group, and CTC-exclusive group clinics. We use such tools as underwater video analysis, mirrors, in-water coaching, and creative pool toys to get the skills across to you quickly and easily.
For those looking for structured group training, CBD offers large group swims throughout the week: our Fast Forward and Masters swimming programs. The Fast Forward program provided technology-enhanced, accelerated learning to triathletes with a desire to transform their swimming and crush old swim splits. Fast Forward includes coach-intensive group swims, individualized technique-improvement plans, periodic video taping, and tri-distance specific practices for you to do on your own. The Masters program is targeted to more advanced swimmers who are looking for a more competitive swimming approach — interval sets, four-stroke practices, sprint sets, etc. And, for those of you with children, we offer child lessons from ages 6 months and up to get your li’l triathlete swimming early and often!
CTC members receive a 10% discount off all instruction at the CBD swim studio and a 10% discount off all session memberships for CBD Fast Forward or Masters group practices. CTC members who join the CBD Masters swim team get an additional 10% off all services offered at the CBD swim studio.
