Atholton Swim Club uses the American Red Cross’s Learn-to-Swim curriculum in our Group Swim Classes. The program is based on a logical, six-level progression that helps swimmers about 6+ years old and adults develop their water safety, survival and swimming skills. It is designed to give participants a positive learning experience.

Class sizes are small so instructors can pay special attention to student abilities and needs. There is no minimum age for swim lessons. However, there is a height requirement of approximately 36 inches, to ensure the child can stand in the shallow end comfortably.

Group classes are two weeks long. Sessions run Monday – Friday the first week, and Monday- Thursday the second week. Friday of the second week is used as a make up for inclement weather.
