UPDATED AND REVISED ON THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 2022:
Please note that the Adult Learn-to-Swim (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 swim 25 yards continuously, jump confidently into deep water, tread water for at least a minute, float (back and front) for at least a minute, and rhythmically breathe with a freestyle (front crawl) stroke, and swim backstroke. 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. Unfortunately, we are not able to offer our Adult Learn-to-Swim (ALTS) programming at this time due to our staffing shortage. We are referring everyone interested in ALTS to +Pool. Registration is now open for +Pool New ALTS Program. We are also referring everyone interested in ALTS to Imagine Swimming. Imagine Swimming has been offering ALTS Programming continuously since April.
In conjunction with a generous grant provided by U.S. Masters Swimming (USMS) & USA Swimming Foundation Adult Learn-to-Swim Grant Program, we launched our new Adult Learn-To-Swim (ALTS) program pilot last year. The USMS/Swim.com Fitness Series is a fundraiser for the USMS ALTS Grant Program. USMS also used the reserves in the ALTS Grant Program fund to provide emergency relief in response to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. We received grant funding through this emergency relief grant program 2020. Combined, USMS has provided us with more than $7,000 in grant funding to help us weather the pandemic. We are extremely grateful for this financial support. We encourage the community to participate and support USMS/Swim.com Fitness Series.
