2024 Swim Lessons

Forest Hill is pleased to offer Swim America swim lessons again this summer. Swim America lessons are taught by members of the American Swimming Coaches Association (A.S.C.A), and offer expert instruction starting with water acclimation and eventually progressing to learning proper stroke techniques. We are looking forward to a great lesson season!

The Swim America Program is designed by professional swim coaches and utilizes the station method to effectively teach a progressive set of skills. Once a child learns how to exhale underwater, they will eventually progress through all 8 stations, focusing on learning critical skills that will enable them to breathe more effectively and swim all four strokes properly. The end goal (after completing Station 5) is to successfully swim an entire length of the pool, non-stop. Because Swim America is goal-directed, the in-water instructor-to-student ratio will never exceed 1:5.

Unless otherwise noted, all lessons are taught in the main or lap pool, both of which have a minimum depth of 3 feet.

Lesson registration is for children 3 years and older. For children under 3 please reach out about private swim lessons.

If you have any questions regarding which level would be the best fit for your child, please email us at swim@fhstc.com.
