Welcome to Central Ohio SwimAmerica.
School year 2013-14 SwimAmerica Registration is OPEN NOW!
Central Ohio SwimAmerica has expanded its services to include four different pools. Click on "Swim Lessons" in the upper left hand side of this page and find the "location" drop down filter at the top of the next page. Schedules for the active pools are listed on the next page. Westerville JC, Oakstone, Upper Arlington, and the Lakes Bubble Pool all have active registrations! Our new format includes non-competitive stroke schools (Waves) along with the traditional SwimAmerica Learn-to-Swim program.
SwimAmerica programming began in the summer of 1992 as a small pilot in Columbus with 19 children using the Northland Swim Club. Since that time literally thousands of children and adults from the central Ohio area have learned to swim at various community and private pools.
SwimAmerica uses a ten station approach which is technique oriented and goal driven! 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! SwimAmerica, developed by the American Swimming Coaches Association, (ASCA), is the leader in quality learn-to-swim programs.
What you should expect at SwimAmerica is low student to coach ratios, knowledgeable, professional and caring staff, a fantastic certificate and sticker reward program, and a safe and enjoyable environment. Our first priority in teaching swimming is to make everyone safe around the water. Second, swimming provides for one of the best forms of fitness for all ages. And, third, by becoming comfortable around the water and skilled in basic swimming techniques one finds the aquatic world is filled with a multitude of recreational activities that add to the overall enjoyment of life.
All of our coaches (instructors) are trained by a certified SwimAmerica Program Director and receive regular in-servicing on the latest drills and techniques in stroke progressions. The curriculum, although very sound, is considered dynamic; always searching for the best way to emphasize an ever changing sport. SwimAmerica does not differentiate between recreational and competitive swimming. Good swimming is good swimming, one should not swim one way because they want to compete and another way just to have fun.
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!
