Why SwimAmerica
UA SWIM AMERICA
 
​Learning to swim through safety, fitness and fun!

        

WHY Swim America?
 
  • Swim America is the learn-to-swim program of the American Swimming Coaches Association. It teaches beginners how to swim, as well as more experienced swimmers proper technique in the our competitive strokes, the freestyle, butterfly, breaststroke, and backstroke.
  • The program is taught in 10 stations. Every student progresses at his/her own rate, independent from other students' development. 
  • Safety is the main reason for learning to swim. The Swim America learn-to-swim program will give your child a safe start in life!
  • The coaches are gentle, responsible, and they understand children. They are all professional coaches and have been certified by the American Swimming Coaches Association.
  • The group sizes are very small; classes will average 5 children per teacher through Station 8.
  • Stations 9 and 10 are taught as pre-team practices, with no set student-to-teacher ratio. After completing the UA Swim America program, swimmers will be well prepared to join the Upper Arlington Swim Club or just enjoy a long life of fun and safety around the water!
