Swim Lesson Provider Network 

To distinguish these providers, we designate them as part of USA Swimming’s Swim Lesson Provider Network, as these swim lesson providers go above and beyond to provide a safe environment and facility by using trained and certified instructors and lifeguards, low student to teacher ratios, and proven techniques and curricula to ensure a quality learning experience for every child.  

The benefits of being a part of USA Swimming’s Swim Lesson Provider Network are endless! Swim Lesson Providers are connected to local Water Safety Coalition networks and supporting organizations, and provided access to discounted or free materials and resources to use when hosting water safety events. Additionally, the USA Swimming Foundation has an annual grant fund for learn-to-swim providers who offer services to children who, otherwise, would not have the opportunity to participate swimming lessons.

Are you providing youth learn-to-swim services and interested in joining our network of  Swim Lesson Providers? To learn more about the program check out our Swim Lesson Provider Network Requirements.

USA Swimming and the USA Swimming Foundation aim to provide the opportunity for every child in America to learn to swim. Through partnerships with learn-to-swim providers, USA Swimming and the USA Swimming Foundation help strengthen aquatic programs and provide financial support for children to learn the lifesaving gift of swimming. 

USA Swimming strongly recommends swim lesson providers who meet or exceed industry best practices, who go above and beyond to provide a safe environment and facility by using trained and certified instructors and lifeguards, a low student to teacher ratio, and industry best practices to empower children with the life saving skill of swimming.
