SWIM AMERICA IS THE NATION'S LEADING TECHNIQUE-ORIENTED SWIM SCHOOL AND LOUISVILLE'S #1 SWIM SCHOOL

 Our mission is to teach swimmers of all ages and levels the proper technique to enhance efficiency, endurance, speed, fun and lifelong success in swimming. Each level has a well-defined skill. When a swimmer masters that specific skill, he or she is ready to move on to the next level.

CANCELLATION & MAKE UP POLICIES

Cancellations must be made 48 hours before the first class/clinic/league is held. There will be a $50 processing fee for any cancellations. A Club credit will be issued for the balance. No refunds..

If your swimmer will be absent for a class, a make-up class will be allowed only if you contact office via email in advance of absence. Make-ups must be completed in the same session and are only available if space permits. No guarantees.
