Goldfish - Youth Lessons (5 Years Old - 12 Years Old)



SwimAmerican lessons build on basics that teach water adjustment and personal safety first. Children master these skills in the early stations before being introduced to strokes in the later stations. As children master each station they are tested by our Site Supervisors and moved into the next station at any time during any class.
