ABOUT THE PROGRAM

General: The Albright College Learn to Swim Program has been one of the most effective and successful Learn to Swim (Ages 3 years and up) programs in the Greater Reading area. We offer both learn to swim for beginners as well as stroke development for more experienced students. In addition, a parent-tot class for our younger students allows parents to splash around with their children, teaching students to become comfortable in the water.

The Program: Our lesson program is built on a system that has proven extremely successful in the past. Beginner students will master floating on their back while kicking and sculling. From there students will graduate to rotary swimming (freestyle) and more advanced stroke development. Whenever possible, children are placed in 1:1 student to teacher ratios. However, due to increased enrollment some students may share an instructor. We strive never to exceed a 3:1 student to teacher ratio.        

Our Instructors: All sessions are staffed by qualified and knowledgeable instructors. Many are members of Albright’s Varsity Swim Team and have years of experience in swim instruction.
