About USA

 

The United Swim Association (USA) is year round swim program that trains swimmers from various communities including Dublin, Hilliard, Lewis Center, Powell, Upper Arlington, and surrounding neighborhoods. Our swimmers range in ages from 5 to 18, and every swimmer enjoys a positive, family-structured swim program.

OUR STORY

The United Swim Association (USA) was founded in 2009, so our story is still being written… 

Our club is a USA Swimming year round competitive swim team offering high quality professional coaching and technique instruction for age group and high school swimmers of all abilities.  We also offer a non-competitive swim program for swimmers who are new to the sport, summer swimmers, or multi-sport athletes who want train with a swim program.

The club’s philosophy focuses around each individual swimmer’s development of stroke technique, training capacity, and most importantly, developing a life-long enjoyment of the sport. We strive to provide every member an opportunity to improve swimming skills and achieve success at his or her level of ability, from novice to national competitor.

All of our coaches, are members of the American Swim Coaches Association, have access to the most comprehensive training and certification program for youth coaches of any sport in the United States. Our Coaches provide assurances that the time children spend in swimming will be quality time.
