Highwood Current's pre-competitive Swim Academy is 3 level skill and technique based program that will take your little fish from a bubble-blower to a confident swimmer. Swim Academy provides small swimmer-to-coach ratios, consistent coaching and feedback, and lots of active time in the water! 

Swim Academy prepares swimmers to enter our competitive stream through development of all four swimming strokes and building endurance in the pool. As swimmers progress through the Swim Academy program, they will have opportunities to try fun "fast" swimming, learn about flip turns, dolphin kick and relays (team work!). Our Fall & Winter semesters will each include a Skills & Thrills day, where our Swim Academy swimmers will get to show of all that they have learned in an exciting and very fun "mini-competition". 

For more information, please contact our Head Coach.
