We Teach Kids to Swim for Health, Safety, Fitness & Fun


SwimAmerica is a state of the art learn to swim program in the world today. Brought to you by the same people who have brought you the most successful sport team on the planet... the USA Olympic Swimming Team. What we learn teaching people to set world records, we use to teach new swimmers to enjoy swimming with the best techniques in the world... just like the development of great cars and trucks from the NASCAR and INDY car races. We learn from and teach the elite athlete AND the new child!

SwimAmerica Pre-School and School Age Swim Lessons: New swimmers will be evaluated at their first class and then assigned to a station based on swimming ability. Each station focuses on a few advancement goals, and once mastered a swimmer is moved to the next station. Our pre-school lesson is for 3 - 4 year olds.  Stations 1 - 10 are for school age children (5 - 18).  Pre-school children will work on the same skill progression but in a smaller group, and will more than likely stay with the same teacher, rather than move to a new station/teacher.  Parents are not in the water for any of our lessons regardless of age.

Middle School and High School Training!  (Replaces our Fitness & Technqiue group beginning Fall 2019).  Swimmers must be 11 years old. Designed for middle and high school aged swimmer who wants to develop their competitive swimming skills without the more rigorous swim team schedule.
