SwimAmerica Swim Lessons

  • Bottoms/Up Pool Platform: All children’s lessons are conducted on the patented Bottoms/Up Pool Platform. These tools facilitate learning and create a comfortable, safe environment for swimmers. We are the only facility in the Northeast to use these platforms.
  • Wetsuit Vests: Available to all children involved with any swim lessons. Designed to fit children from seven months to seven years, these vests are very effective in keeping the young swimmer’s core warm.
  • Open Swim: Swim lesson participants may use the pool for open swim during all regular pool hours. An adult must supervise participants at all times and are invited to swim with his or her child. This offer is available only while a child is actively enrolled in classes.
    Daily Fee: Adults $10, Children $5, Families $20
