Whether you are looking at entering into competitive swimming, or new to the sport entirely, Blue Eagle's Swim Academy is your splash into the exciting world of swimming.  Blue Eagle's Swim Academy is not your traditional lessons program: Our classes are designed to teach your young athlete the fine motor skills necessary to be comfortable and confident in their abilities.  With small class sizes, your child will get immediate feedback on how they are developing in the water.  Skills take time to develop, so we will not rush your child, but instead will take the time necessary for them to understand and master these tasks.

We expect participants to acquire new skills at different rates. Continuously throughout this program, our coaches will be evaluating each swimmer’s progress. By the time your swimmer graduates Swim Academy they will have the knowledge and skills to begin training and competition in both backstroke and freestyle events.

BLUE's coaches will recommend the next best step for your swimmer. You may choose to continue with  Swim Academy simply to continue building life long water skills. If your child is interested in competing, BLUE's coaches will recommend either    Blue Eagle Swimming's year-round age-group USA-S Competitive Swim Team  or Nazareth's Summer Swim Team (a.k.a. Narwhals)  which runs June & July.

Swim Academy is lead by BLUE's full time professional USA-S coach Seth Urffer. Coach Seth is also NHS Swim and Dive Team's Head Coach. Seth is assisted by BLUE's  USA-S Coach Jason and Coach Kyle.  

Maximum Enrollment :  Space is Limited, so register now!  Once full, inquiries will be placed on a Wait List.


  • BLUE Annual  (September 2017 thru August 2018) Admin Fee  $15/swimmer
  • NASD Resident: $30/month
  • Non-NASD Resident:  $50/month


First month's Fee and BLUE Annual Admin fee are due at time of OnLine Registration (OLR).  These fees are non-refundable.  


This is a rolling membership. Your swimmers continued participation is assumed until you contact BLUE's Registrar to change your swimmers' status.  Fees are not pro-rated. 

There is no Swim Academy during the months of March, August, December, therefore you will not be charged on the 1st of those months.

After your first month fee is paid in the OLR, each following month's monthly training fees will be auto-invoiced to your account on the 1st of that month. 

You can setup auto-payment by credit card (fees apply) or pay by check no later than the 15th of the month to avoid late fees.


NOTE: Pool availability is based on NASD usage.  If NASD notifies BLUE of a facility change that impacts Swim Academy practice time, please understand that this is beyond the control of BLUE. BLUE will communicate to you a.s.a.p if that should occur.

We follow NASD weather policy.  When NASD cancels or dismisses early, or campus is closed due to weather/other reason, there is NO SWIM ACADEMY that day. BLUE will make every attempt to schedule a makeup class when pool space is available.
