Old City Swim School is a technique-driven learn-to-swim-program that teaches the four classic swim strokes.

A level-based “building block” curriculum,  swimmers are promoted from one level to the next upon successful mastery of the specific skills required at each of the 8 levels.



2-3 years old is the perfect time to start becoming comfortable in the water. Our toddler program focuses on developing the foundational skills required to successfully participate in our SwimAmerica Learn-to-Swim Program for kids ages 3-12 years old. Children who are the most successful in our learn-to-swim program were a part of our toddler program.

We currently only offer Toddler Instruction through Private Lessons. We hope to have a Parent and Tot class (back) on our schedule by Spring, 2022.


Old City Swim’s Learn-to-Swim program provides an essential first-step in preparing kids for a lifetime of fun in and around the water. The Learn-to-Swim program is a technique-based program designed for kids ages 3-12 who are comfortable getting wet and being in the pool with a coach.

Our primary goal for our Learn-to-Swim Program is to make your child #PoolSafe. What this means to us is that they are able to swim 8 lengths of the pool without stopping, breathing to their side. They can also tread water for 3 minutes with their hands in the water and 1 minute without the use of their hands. Lastly, they will be able to do 2 lengths of the pool backstroke and breaststroke.
