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 for session registration must be made before the first class is held. There will be a $50 processing fee for any cancellations. If clinics are cancelled due to Covid-19 government mandates, the Club will offer a credit that may be applied to any Club programs. 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.
