Learn To Swim

Coaching Beginner Swimmers In A Fun Atmosphere And Getting Them Up To Swim Team Level - Faster.

Tier 1 'Learn To Swim Program' is all private, one to one coach/swimmer ratio.  Lessons are taught by our experienced Tier 1 instructors, headed by Coach Bailey and assisted by Coach Nolan.  Click here for their profile.


Ages 10 months and older with all skill levels encouraged to sign up.  Swim lessons are private and plans are created around what each individual swimmer needs.  There are no levels to advance through.  Swimmers grow as individuals, making advances on their own with no pressure or interruption from other swimmers. 


Coaches encourage swimmers to make advancements during each session, but only advance swimmers to the next level when fully ready.

All classes are uniquely designed for each swimmer.  

  • Beginner classes familiarize new swimmers to an aquatic environment and help them acquire basic aquatic skills, including water safety.  There are no skill prerequisites for beginners and all skills are performed with support from the instructor in the pool.  
  • Swimmers with some skills and abilities will build on and improve the skills they already know.   Swimmers will also be introduced to diving into the pool. Skills are performed with the support of the instructor in the pool.
  • Swimmers with advanced skills and abilities will continue to build and develop stroke refinement and technique.  Swimmers will learn the proper start from the blocks, preparing them for entry into Tier 1 Competitive Levels, should they want to advance further into competitive swimming.  Skills are performed independently.  This level has proven to be a fantastic transition to ease swimmers into competitive swimming.    
  • All sessions are $20/half hour.
  • We only accept checks written to Albright College or cash.  

  • You can register anytime.  There is no set schedule of days required.  You can schedule every Sunday or just a few per month.
  • Sessions are held every Sunday morning 8am - 12pm.  You can schedule what's convenient for you and sessions do not need to be consecutive.
  • If you have other family members registered for competitive sessions, we can schedule the 'Learn To Swim' session at the same time, if coaches are available.
