How do I know if my child needs swim lessons?
School age children need swim lessons to learn to swim on top of the water. Underwater swimming cannot save their lives! Children tire quickly underwater, and trying to sustain underwater swimming may even cause a drowning. Learning proper technique with proper air exchange will help your child build confidence in the water and may save his or her life.

How long will it take my child to learn-to-swim?
This depends on your child's age and level of fitness. Older children tend to learn more quickly and most can learn-to-swim 2 or more strokes in 20 or so lessons. SwimAmerica doesn't consider someone a swimmer until they pass Station 10.
