OLYMPIC WAY – Learn to Swim Program


The Hamilton Aquatic Club invites you to see why our Olympic Way program is making a splash in the aquatics world! This learn to swim program is geared towards children aged 3-10*.   Children do not need to be able to swim independently.  Our coaches are in the water with your swimmer, with the goal of getting them swimming independently.  We utilize the most effective techniques in teaching children how to swim the four strokes. Children will receive updates on their progress each session. Groups will have five or less children per coach. If your child is currently unable to pass a “swim test” at your local recreation center they can benefit from this program.

Here is what you can expect from our sessions:

  • Progression and lesson plans for all levels
  • Report cards at the end of the session
  • Increased focus on learning through play
  • Olympic Way program for three and four year olds
