Swim America

is a state-of-the-art, national learn to swim program developed by the American Swim Coaches Association (ASCA)

for Infants, Pre-School, School-Age and Adult Students. 

The Swim America Program is: (1) Quality Controlled - the cornerstone of this program is maintained from the National Office down to every coach working with every individual student by training, communicatoin and follow-through, (2) Goal-driven - the Swim America Program has advancement criteria that provides the student with clear tests of their own abilities, and (3) Technique-oriented - Swim America believes that "good swimming is good swimming".  There is no distinction between "competitive" and "recreational technique".

All of our Coach Instructors are trained and certified by our Swim America Program Directors. 

Trinity Fellowship's Sports Ministry Program Director is the holder of our Swim America License and has been granted the exclusive right to operate the Swim America Program in St. Louis, Missouri and surrounding areas

Swim America is designed for everybody, regardless of usage intentions.  It prepares any student who wishes to learn with the tools to participate in and appreciate a wide variety of aquatic activities like: competitive swim racing which is organized to provide excitement for children and adults alike (Swim Team), long-distance swimming, triathlon, springboard and platform diving, water polo, synchronized swimming and SCUBA diving.  Also, activities such as boating, water skiing, surfing, sailing, canoeing and fishing are made less hazardous when a participant can remove themselves from danger if the unexpected should occur.

Swim America is taught in 10 stations:

Station1: Bubbles

Station2: Floats and Glides

Station 3: Kicking

Station 4: Crawl Stroke

Station 5: Freestyle

Station 6: Backstroke

Station 7: Breastroke

Station 8: Butterfly

Station 9: Lifetime Strokes

Station 10: Individual Medley

Swim America teaches more than just how to swim.  Proper techniques are emphasized, with attention given to correct body position, movement of arms and legs, breathing and timing of the strokes.  In all stations, the students will focus on good swimming, which makes students safe in the water, fitness, health and fun.

Each new student is evaluated and placed in the station that best suits their ability.  A returning student will be placed in the station they were working on at the end of their last session.  The Program Director will track each student's progress and station placement. Unlike other learn-to-swim programs that lock a student in for the duration of a scheduled session which consists of several classes maybe even the entire program, Swim America is progressive and moves each student to a higher station(s) as they master the skills even if that means advancing  the student through several stations in one class. The Students find this program concept exciting and very rewarding because they get to see immediate results as they rewarded each time they advance.  Remember, students will progress at different rates.  Progress depends on each student's age, maturity and fitness level.

After Station 10 of the Swim America Program, the student will be able to swim 300 non-stop yards of freestyle, 100 yards of Backstroke and 100 yards of Individual Medley because Swim America considers this to be the definition of "Learn to Swim".

The student will not only be proficient in all four of the Olympic Strokes: butterfly, backstroke, breastroke and freestyle but also possess the skills of extended swimming and technique refinement in all major strokes and turns.  At this point the student will also have the skills necessary to join LOVE Swimming or Team Genesis Swim Club.  The difference between LOVE Swimming and Team Genesis Swim Club is the level of commitment.

Our Swim America Program also has a Pre-Competitive Swim Team.  This is PERFECT for the swimmer who is a talented athlete but: (1) does not have the time to compete; (2) does not want to compete, or (3) does not want to comit to a year-round competitive swim program but wants to learn more than swim lessons.  Here are the qualifications for our Swim America Pre-Competitive Swim Team:

1. Must be able to swim 50 yards of freestyle

2. Must be able to swim 25 yards of backstroke.

3. Must have an idea of how to swim Breastroke.

4. Must have an idea of how to swim Butterfly.

5. Must be a level 8 or higher in our Swim America Program.
