SwimAmerica is a national program which was developed by competitive swimming coaches and successful swim school directors over 10 years ago. SwimAmerica is the only swim program endorsed by the American Swimming Coaches Association (ASCA), the most prestigious coaches association in the world. With SwimAmerica water safety comes first! SwimAmerica lessons are designed to teach all the swim skills your child needs to be safe in and around the water for a lifetime. Although SwimAmerica operates at over 900 sites across the United States, Express SwimAmerica is one of only three licensed SwimAmerica programs in New Jersey.
Key features of the Express SwimAmerica program include:
SwimAmerica is station-based program with 10 different stations offering instruction for children of all levels. At Express SwimAmerica, we begin at age 3 - as long as your child is potty trained. As the skills of each station are mastered, your child is rewarded and moved to the next station within the progression. This effective step by step method allows even the youngest swimmers to learn to swim SAFELY, while offering stronger swimmers the opportunity to develop all of the competitive strokes.
The following is a brief summary of each station's skills and goals:
Note : Good breathing is the KEY to good swimming. If you do not breathe properly then you will not swim well, and you will tire more quickly. We spend alot of time working on bobs and breathing properly at all SwimAmerica stations.
SwimAmerica classes are held at The College of New Jersey (TCNJ) Aquatic Center in Ewing, NJ. The Aquatic Center is located in the center of the TCNJ campus, and houses an eight-lane pool with a movable bulkhead that can be set at twenty-five yards, twenty-five meters, or thirty meters for water polo. A separate adjoining diving area includes two three-meter and two one-meter diving boards. The diving tank area provides additional pool space for swimming instruction, and facilitates close instructor-swimmer interaction.
Driving directions and an aerial view of the facility can be obtained from the links in the table below. The College of New Jersey campus is located just minutes off of Interstate 95.
Swimmers should plan to arrive 5-10 minutes prior to the start of each class.
