SwimAmerica, developed by the American Swimming Coaches Association (ASCA), is the leader in quality learn-to-swim programs. SwimAmerica uses a technique oriented and goal driven approach to teach throughout its 10 stations.  Focusing on a smaller set of skills and advancing the students as they master the station goals provides motivation and excitement as they progress from one station to the next!

Central Ohio SwimAmerica (COSA) has been operating for nearly 25 years and through our program, thousands of children and adults from the central Ohio area have learned to swim at various community and private pools.  Currently, COSA currently offers services at these pools:

  • JC Pool,  Westerville

  • Oakstone Academy, Westerville,

  • Lakes Golf & Country Club, Westerville,

  • Northland Swim Club, Columbus

  • Upper Arlington High School Pool

Whether you are learning to swim as an adult, placing your child in classes, or bringing your infant or toddler to the pool, SwimAmerica has a program for you! We invite you to learn more about the SwimAmerica by clicking the links above and then join us by registering online. 

Swimmer Evaluations will be conducted on Sunday October 26th from 5:30-6:15 at the Lakes Bubble pool.  These are NOT required, you can see the station definitions to place your swimmer into the levels. If not sure between 2 levels, it is best to guess one level down.  Level placement for new swimmers is always confirmed within the first few minutes of class on the first day and adjustments can be made. Evaluations take about 10 mins and are on a first come, first-served basis.
