BLAIRWOOD AQUATICS DIRECTOR

Our SwimAmerica program is technique-oriented. We focus on proper stroke mechanics from the very first lesson. Each level (station) has a well-defined skill. When a child masters that specific skill, he or she is ready to move to the next level. Children who go through the SwimAmerica lesson program acquire the correct technique for future swimming. All SwimAmerica programs are taught by experienced and professional coaches who are ASCA-certified.
