Education for Association Members

The core purpose of the US Swim School Association is to provide resources to assist our members in achieving their goals in the learn-to-swim industry.  The US Swim School Association offers educational courses through our online learning management system.  There are also numerous workshops that take place at our Spring Conference and Annual Conference each year.  The association also offers On The Go Workshops that can be taught at any member’s own facility.

Infant-Toddler Course

The US Swim School Association’s Infant Toddler Instructor Course was developed to educate professionals involved in aquatic programs for children 36 months and under using the US Swim School Association Infant Toddler Guidelines to encourage comfort, confidence and success without trauma for children under the age of 3.

 

Special Abilities Course

The US Swim School Association’s Special Abilities Training Course has been developed for aquatic professionals to better understand students who may have learning challenges. This course is designed to educate the aquatic professional how to instruct the “Special Ability” student to be successful in the aquatic environment by focusing on their abilities, while understanding their disabilities.

 

Movement & Brain Development Course

The US Swim School Association’s Movement & Brain Development Online Course investigates the hidden power of movement and its implications in a child’s physical, emotional and cognitive development. The course will explore basic brain development and its connection to movement.

 

On The Go Workshops

Any member of US Swim School Association may request an Infant Toddler ON THE GO Workshop to be taught at their own facility. All arrangements (travel, accommodations, venue, dates and time) may be worked out with an instructor of your choice or you can call the association office to get further information on these workshops.
