TNYA is proud to provide an Adult Learn-to-Swim Program (ALTS) in conjunction with U.S. Masters Swimming (USMS) & USA Swimming Foundation Adult Learn-to-Swim Grant Program. The ALTS program occurs in specific sessions held throughout the year, consistent with coaching and grant funding availability. For information on the next ALTS session, keep an eye on our latest news page.
The ALTS program is appropriate for those without basic lifesaving swimming skills to get themselves to safety if they were to fall into deep water. The final skills assessment for ALTS requires participants to jump confidently into deep water, tread water for at least a minute, float (back and front) for at least a minute, rhythmically breathe with a freestyle (front crawl) stroke (at least 25 yards), swim backstroke (at least 25 yards), and safely and confidently exit the pool from the deep end.
If you already have these basic lifesaving skills, then the appropriate clinic program for you is our intermediate swim clinic program called Low Pressure Zone. If you do not yet have these lifesaving skills, then ALTS is the appropriate program for you!
TNYA regrets that we cannot provide ALTS year-round, but looks forward to our next ALTS session. Details will be announced on TNYA’s home page in due course.
ALTS is made possible by a generous grant from the U.S. Masters Swimming (USMS) & USA Swimming Foundation Adult Learn-to-Swim Grant Program. The USMS/Swim.com Fitness Series is a fundraiser for the USMS ALTS Grant Program. We are extremely grateful for this financial support. We encourage the community to participate and support USMS/Swim.com Fitness Series.
