Swim School

A learn-to-swim program that teaches an advanced progression of swimming in a two-week period.

Westtown Aquatic Program’s Swim School is a learn-to-swim program that teaches an advanced progression of swimming in a two-week period. The beginning swimmer is initially taught the self-rescue survival float which will allow them to remain calm and confident in a distressful situation. Once swimmers are able to achieve the self-rescue float, they’re promoted to the next level from Novice to Advanced. Instruction is capped at a 5:1 ratio. Swimmers will swim attend lessons from 4 pm – 4:45pm after the camp day is complete. Please make sure all swimmers have an extra swimsuit and towel with them to change into at the end of camp.

Skill Levels: To achieve a consistent progression we believe a fluid transition from group to group will assistant in maximizing swimmer engagement. Students will be tested on the first day of class and placed accordingly. Instructors or a deck manager will monitor your student’s progress and place them in the appropriate group.

Pre-requisite: All students must be 4 years of age and entering pre-K.
