HAC Swim School


The Hamilton Aquatic Club invites you to see why our newly designed HAC Swim School is making a splash in the aquatics world! This swim development program is geared towards children aged 4-11*.   Children do not need to be able to pass the City of Hamilton swim test to participate. 

Once COVID-19 restrictions are lifted, our coaches are in the water with your swimmer, with the goal of getting them swimming independently.  We utilize the most effective techniques in teaching children how to swim the four strokes, dives, turns and technical swimming skills.  Our ratio of swimmer to coach is unmatched.

*Fall 2021 - Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we are currently only running our Silver and Gold Program.
