SwimAmerica Swim Lessons

What are SwimAmerica swim lessons?

SwimAmerica offers infant through adult lessons.  We teach with the most effective method known, using progression developed by United States swim coaches.  Our goal is to teach your child to swim quickly.  All coaches are certified by SwimAmerica, a national program of the American Swimming Coaches Association.

 

 
 

 

How do I know if my child needs swim lessons?

bullet

Preschool children need swim lessons to learn safety skills.  The most important skill the "roll over", a skill where your child will learn to float on his/her back and get air.  Other skills like swimming to the wall in case they accidentally fall into the water need to be learned as well.

bullet

School age children need swim lessons to learn to swim on top of the water.  Underwater swimming cannot save your life!  Children tire quickly underwater, and trying to sustain underwater swimming may even cause drowning!  Learning a good freestyle stroke with proper air exchange will help your child build confidence in the water and may save their life.

 

How long will it take to learn to swim?

This depends on your child's age and skill level.  It may take 20 or more lessons for preschoolers to learn the basic skills of floating, returning to the wall and rolling over on their back to breathe, float and rest.
