Before teaching their own students, all WSC Instructors spend a minimum of 30-40 hours of on the job training. Once Instructors are trained they also participate in on-going trainings on-line and in person.
SwimAmerica was developed by coaches of the American Swimming Coaches Association in order to provide the finest learn-to-swim program available. The SwimAmerica coaching staff has been professionally trained to offer your child the latest in teaching and learning. SwimAmerica is both goal driven and technique oriented. Children are taught in small groups (4:1) and have the ability to move up to progressively higher stations as they achieve the goals of their current group.
Wichita Swim Club Swim School strives for each swimmer to receive the best education and experience through swimming to prepare them to be champions in life, both in AND out of the water. The emphasis of the Wichita Swim School Program is to teach proper swim techniques while learning basic water safety in a fun, energetic atmosphere.
The number one goal of our program is to teach your child to REALLY swim- increasing their chance of surviving in the event of a water emergency. Our second goal is to teach them to swim well by emphasizing correct competitive swimming techniques from the start. Streamline, body-roll, and bi-lateral breathing are just a few of the skills taught in SwimAmerica. At all times, a Program Director or Site-Supervisor is on deck to review skills, assist coaches, and communicate with parents and guardians.
September-May are monthly sessions 2 days a week. June-July a session is 2 weeks long 4 days a week.

"Everyone here, from the director to the teachers, is amazing! When we started, my daughter would cry and scream through every lesson and had to be carried in because she was so scared. Two weeks later, she’s all smiles as she jumps in the water to her (incredibly patient) teacher! She loves going to lessons now and gets so excited to tell everyone about all the things she’s learning!"
"The progress our kids have made since they started here a few MONTHS ago is amazing! Along with that, they love going to their lessons. Love them!"
"My three kids ages 6, 3, and 2 just started lessons there and I love it. Small ratios means more learning the basic skills needed and a bonus is the staff is awesome and the kids love it.
Also, a plus is not having to work around the Y’s class schedules. Students are assessed and placed by skill which means They have enough staff to support all the levels simultaneously."
"Wichita Swim School has been amazing for my kid. She made it through all the swimming levels to jr squad and has now moved onto swim team.
We will forever recommend their classes to anyone who asks.
Thank you Wichita Swim School!"
