WHAT IS LEARN TO SWIM?
Pittsburgh Elite Aquatics – Upper St. Clair offers small-group lessons for children ages 4-12 (6th grade) throughout the year at Upper St. Clair High School. Our lesson program develops a beginning swimmer’s skill through our 6-level program. With the completion of all levels, a swimmer will be able to perform all four competitive strokes correctly. Instruction for our program is provided by certified instructors and assisted by members of our swim club. We strive to have a very low student to teacher ratio in our classes in order for swimmers to get excellent instruction.
