Due to school district Covid restrictions, PEAQ is currently not allowed to offer small group swim lessons at our USC site.  Please check back often for updates.
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.




  • Level 1 - first time swimmer (doesn’t know how to blow bubbles or put head under the water)
  • Level 2 - blowing bubbles with their faces in the water and can float with assistance
  • Level 3 - can swim with their face in the water (on belly) and float on their back-no assistance
  • Level 4 - can swim freestyle (breathing to the side), backstroke and learning breaststroke
  • Level 5 - can swim freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and learning butterfly
  • Level 6 - can swim all strokes-this level builds endurance and teaches flip turns
Please note that the completion of a session does not equate with the completion of a level.  Students may require several sessions in each level to master the skills necessary to advance to the next level.
