BUILDING STRONG SWIMMERS - ONE STATION AT A TIME!

#1 Question of 2016:  How do lessons work?

On a child's first day of lessons, we evaluate them for their skill level.  This is NOT based on grade in school or age, simply ability level.  We have 12-14 instructors working around the pool in 10 different skill levels with their small groups.  All 10 stations are available at EVERY LESSON TIME OFFERED.   This way you simply need to choose the day of the week and time that works best for you.  We take it from there!  Your child will move through the program at THEIR SPEED!  Our site supervisor, roaming the deck at every lesson, will work closely with the instructors to evaluate children in their small groups and move a child who is ready up to the next level that same day.

 Why SwimAmerica for my child?
Lots of organizations and individuals teach swimming lessons. And you can pay less than you will pay at SwimAmerica. We don't teach lessons. We teach PEOPLE HOW TO SWIM. So what do you want to purchase? Swim lessons or having your child learn to swim? SwimAmerica Programs are all taught by members of the American Swimming Coaches Association who are certified in the teaching of swimming and experts in the proper development of stroke technique. We're the best in the world. Does your child deserve less than the best?

How are SwimAmerica Lessons different from others?
You'll find two critically important features in SwimAmerica Learn to Swim... First, we're technique oriented. We teach your child to swim like a pro with expert technique from the very first day in the water. They'll start with learning how to exhale underwater... and progress through every skill that an Olympic Swimmer will learn when they learned to swim. Second, we're goal-directed. Our coaches (in-water instructors) focus on the critical skills to achieve to move your child through the teaching progression as rapidly as they can do so. All learning is individually based... your child will learn as fast as they are able to do so, no waiting for those "slower in development." That's crucial when your child's safety is at stake. SwimAmerica is run by the pros. And your child's progress will prove it.

Our SwimAmerica program services all children from the Milwaukee, Cedarburg, Mequon, Saukville, Port Washington, Grafton, and Germantown communities.  We welcome you all to tryout our program, we know you will be happy with the results.
