Swim America is a national, goal-driven, and technique-oriented learn-to-swim program. Sessions run Monday-Thursday for two weeks. The average class size is 6 swimmers per coach. Preschool participants must be 3 years old before the first class and must be accompanied by an adult in the water. Participants must attend the time and location of the session they are registered for.
