Learn to Swim Program

Our aquatics program is designed to teach personal water safety and stroke development to youth and adults alike. Sessions are typically grouped in eight class bundles. This gives students time to build confidence, explore the water and hone skills at their own pace. No matter what age or skill, we have a program for you or your child.

School

Classes are divided by swimmer skill. Each one-hour lesson is split in to 30 minutes of instruction time, followed by 30 minutes of social/free-play time. Free playtime means students are in the water exploring their independence. If the child is 5 and under and can’t swim 25 yards by themselves, they will be put into a flotation device for their protection.

I am so excited to start as the lessons coach at Worthington for the summer! I have been the head coach for Highland’s competitive summer team for two years, and this will be my first year with Worthington. I dove for Westerville North High School where I set the record for the girls’ 6 dive score across the district. I also dove club for OSDC/ACES. I just finished my freshman year at the University of Indianapolis, where I was on the dive team there as well. This fall I will be attending Ohio State University, and I will be studying psychology, biology, and American Sign Language on the pre-med track.
