"No Other Lesson or Sport Can Save Your Child’s Life!"

SwimAmerica Learn-to-Swim Lessons: SwimAmerica’s learn-to-swim program offers a goal-driven, technique-oriented approach to teaching children ages 4 and older everything from basic water safety skills to the proper stroke mechanics for competitive swimming. Children are kept in small groups, and each swimmer advances independently and immediately upon achieving the advancement goals of their current swim station.

In SwimAmerica's station 7, swimmers build endurance in all four strokes – butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke, and freestyle – and learn the competitive and racing skills necessary for swim team. Competition is available to swimmers in stations 6 and 7.

Skills and Advancement Goals for SwimAmerica Stations 1-7: Learn-to-swim classes for school-age swimmers ages 4 and older are offered in seven swim stations that promote  safety, fitness, health, and fun. Each station emphasizes proper techniques, with attention given to correct body position, movement of arms and legs, breathing, and timing of the strokes.

SwimTulsa White Team: After successfully completing SwimAmerica’s station 7 objectives, your swimmer may advance to year-round, competitive swimming by joining SwimTulsa's White Team for novice swimmers. SwimTulsa membership details can be found on our homepage.

Go for the Gold Swim Meets: SwimAmerica swimmers in stations 6 and 7 are encouraged to participate in our intrasquad "Go for the Gold" meets held every 8-week session of lessons to learn about competing in USA Swimming competitions and to experience and practice racing in a fun environment. The meets are held at th e Union Pool on a regular practice night, and the cost to participate is $5 (cash/check payable to SwimTulsa).
